Anyone know what manual steering box can bolt right on to a 1997 jeep grand Cherokee?? I'd also like the gearing as low as possible. I'd like to be able to remove the pump and steering box in one piece then put them in a plastic bag to keep the internals clean!! Thanks
I'm wondering about the same thing.. I see absolutely no reason or any type of situation where you'd need slower steering (more turn lock-to-lock), no matter if on the trails or highways.
Are you having issues with the current system, don't you have enough power on the power steering, or what? If it's about lack of power on the trails, get a PSC high power pump + fluid cooler, or hydro assist. You can also swap in a smaller PS pulley for increased fluid pressure @ low RPMs.
If you've got some other steering.- related issues (ie. wandering, non-precise steering, etc.), find out what causes it and fix it. I've never heard of anyone wanting manual steering for any use, except for a go-kart or something
No power steering ? You might as well cut out the floor too and power it by foot like Fred Flintstone
To answer your question and not be just a smartass , Your best bet would be to look in the Wagoneer line in the 70-80's to see if it was offered . Waggy boxes bolt up but check the older model to be sure .
