    My power steering box is leaking....everywhere. So I decided to order a new one from Rock Auto. The box arrived today, but it's way smaller than the power steering box that's in the car.

    Anyone aware of a smaller power steering box? Will it fit in place of the larger box? I sure hope I don't have to send it back for credit.

    Almost forgot.... car in question is a 1974 Valiant Brougham, V8 (if that matters).

    Was that one of the Cardone boxes, I have one on order from summit been waiting almost 6 weeks, its on back order, dont hear very good things about Cardone, was thinking of doing it myself but I dont want to get into something I may not be able to finish. So I'll spin the wheel and see what happens.

    The only smaller power steering gear I am aware of is aftermarket, Borgenson or something like that.
    As far as I know, all OEM are the same size.
