Re: Lares 972 steering boxes
Ok I just went out in the garage and noticed my steering box has 4 bolt holes and is only using 3 of them so I called Lares back.
This is what is going on, the 974 is a newer 3 bolt casing that they converted to fit early cars(like ours). They changed it to accept the flared fittings, the only other diffrence is the gear the coupler fits on is a little smaller, thats why you get a new coupler with it, so it all matches up. And I also asked about the longer pitman arm, and they suggested not to use it, that it would make it to quik.
This seams like the easiest way to go. One manufacturer 2 lines, 3 bolts, swap, and your done.
Id still like to hear from anyone who is using one of these steering gears and get some feedback.
Thanks yet again
