yeah i just rebuilt my whole steering system from gear to steering wheel, the rebuilt steering gear i got from autozone(online only, its a special manufacturer that drop ships via their website) and it was i think $225.
Edit: it was $244 with a core of $85, so it actually only cost me $160.00!! And it works great too, stock gear on 4" of lift and 33" SS's, I got new brackets from quadratec and had to modify them a bit but other than that no problems and im real happy with it.
Habitual MSC#2 in summer and MSC#4 in winter.
