1968 Z28 Steering Box - Rebuildable?

Is the steering box rebuildable? I just got back from an oil change and determined the loss of power steering fluid was coming directly from the steering box. Is this something that can be rebuilt? Anyone know of a company that does rebuilding of this part?

If it is the original only let them have it if they will rebuild yours. If not, there are many places to get your original rebuilt.

I used these guys to rebuild the power steering gearbox - turned out great:

Shipping costs were reasonable ~ $20 using FedEx ground.

You may also consider Tom Lee from Lee Manufacturing. I have used him in the past for other products and talked to him personally, he is very intelligent. I would trust him to rebuilt any steering box I had.

Lee Manufacturing's Phone Number is - (818)768-0371
