RHD Steering Box

After all I have done on the front end of this truck the steering is still not 100% and I know it's not going to get there but it should be at least 95% .
I am still waiting for the stabilizer to turn up and give that a try but I'm not holding my breath on the results.
Question : where do we go to get any information on and about RHD Steering boxes, has anyone replaced a RHD steering box yet or had one rebuilt.
Thanks for any info.

Not me. Bryan has the rocket kit on he's truck. Did it himself and I believe he is happy with it. You eliminate the dummy box and run straight from the RHD one. They supply a converted drag link and a mount that goes over your front diff that supports then panhard bar. Thats the bit i dont like.

Blue, quick turn around on the box, interested to see how your truck drives after the rebuild. I think it is a path I'd also like to follow.

Brian, fishin's not too good this time of year. Hibernation prob'ly.

Yeah i payed air freight to get it over there and back quickly, the workmanship look good from http://www.nationalpowersteering.com.au/ .
I went out in the workshop and fitted the box last night , only takes 1/2 an hour, now have to find a good video on the flush procedure.
