No noise at all from the belt area now after the pump replacement.

Oh yeah, good luck finding that oil pump pulley.

I meant power steering, not sure where I came up with oil pump. I've been working third shift from 5-5, must be those late nights lol. And thanks for the advice on the water pump, I'll check that out before I start looking for that oil pump pulley

Answering that...I love it. No worries at all without a trac bar. Double triangulated 4-link is fantastic.

I do want to make my sway bar work though. With the Addco up front, on-road isn't bad. Got a little nervous in offcamber stuff in Moab though.

When I blew mine, I replaced it with a reman from AutoZone. It comes with a lifetime warranty. If it goes out, I bring it in and they give me another. I'm sure you could do that with the Durango ones too if you'd like something stronger and you want the warranty. Thought is throw that out there for some food for thought.

Yeah and thats what I dont wanna go through having to remove the skid anf the steering brace every time becomes a pita cause I gotta remove bottom rad hose as well

Also found an 80 wagoneer would that fit up and be heavier duty? Thought it would be cuz of the big *** rear and knuckle it turns

neither is your 4th steering box!!

its actually pretty simple, my buddy has a stock box with hydro assist running 38's on a d60 and broke a knuckle without brekaing the box. he actually tapped the pressure side of the steering box for the feed
