About to order PSC steering box, ordering the right one?
 
http://www.pscmotorsports.com/garage...sist-3602.html

In my steering gear search, I found this guy on sale. New unit, not reman, and on sale.

My question is, most gear boxes I see for our ZJs are variable ratio. Is it okay for me to bolt up this fixed ratio, or do I need the variable?

Im almost positive Ill be fine with this, but when spending $300 I thought I might as well ask the experts.

Thanks in advance!

Its fine. I'm going to order one too!

I have been waiting for something like this for a while now. Looks like I am busting out the plastic. Too good of a deal to pass up. Thanks for the heads up.

Just placed the order. I am very excited to get this old ragged gear out of there and feel the new awesomeness.

Found that myself a few days ago and wondered about the fixed rate..

IIRC a variable ratio will turn the tires faster when it gets closer to the steering stops and away from center?

Variable will turn smoother and faster from what I've read. I'm willing to take the fixed ratio in exchange for a new PSC box.

Exactly. Won't matter to me because it will be a night and day difference for the better.

The addco is nice. I have that one too. It's pretty beefy. I have been thinking about the KOR brace as well. Damn it. My wife is gonna get pissed again hahaha:rofl:

Something to look out for with the addco bar. The ends are much thicker and with mine it started to gauge metal out of the stock trackbar bracket since I did not have an adj TB and the axle was pushed out to the drivers side. It eventually got stuck beneath it and bent the endlink mount on the axle and destroyed the endlinks themselves. I got the IRO double sheer TB and it solved that. But then at only 2" the corner of the coil perch hit the double sheer bracket when it was stuffed so I had to trim the perch. Jeeze one thing after another.

Damn. Now I have to take my Vicodin laden body outside to get a pick. I damaged my knee horsing around with my buddy who is a former marine. He is about 6' 1" and 270. I am around the same height but 50 lbs lighter. We were both drunk and I asked him to show me some Krav Maga. Last thing I said was " I have a gun!" and stuck my hand out. Next thing I knew I was looking up at the stars lol. I have been hobbling around for about a week now. :cheers:

It's going to be a few minutes.

A real expert would not have hurt you. :laugh:

No hurry on the pic. I just want to see and hear how you handled it. I'm tired of hearing the sickening thud when I hit a speed hump or a dip.

Not only that but it loosened the bolt for the TB and the mount started clunking.

That was not as bad as I thought it would be. Just goes to show that with the power of positive thinking, and drugs, anything is possible. I used a Dremmel and did it twice. Didn't take enough off the first time.

That happened to me to! I bubbaed the four nuts and haven't heard it since.

I have a dremel. I hammered on it awhile back and it helped...doesn't hit as hard.
