Re: Anyone ever rebuild their manual steering box?
Take off the top cover bolts. You have to screw in the adjuster to get it off. Take a look inside and see what it looks like. If all the grease is gone and it's full of gunk, you'd be better of getting a rebuilt or rebuilding the whole thing. Mine was just like yours. It was smooth everywhere but in the middle. When I took it apart, the bearings, bushings, shafts etc., were all galled and pitted. I had it rebuilt with all new guts and it was $300. Since this didn't come off your car, just buy a good one or rebuilt if yours is no good.
