Disco 1 steering boxes are the same. Most junk yards.

And I would suggest changing to the Disco arm while you are at it. It makes TRE replacement easier. You just need a clamp for the steering dampener.

But he is getting a "new" box... If he gets one from a Disco, the arm is on it.... Take the tie rod at the same time. Buy a damper relocation kit (lots of options) and there you go.

FWIW many here seem to be of the impression that the difference between a three bolt and four bolt box is how they attach to the frame. The difference is @ the top/cap plate on the box where the adjuster is, not how it attaches to the chassis.
I have both three bolt and four bolt boxes here and there is virtually no performance difference between them and they are interchangeable as long as you change the pitman arm with the box as the lower splines are different. One is simply an older design than the other.
Many consider the three bolt to be stronger internally.

Thanks! I wasn't aware of this swap. Something worth considering. Though I don't really want to go changing the other components as I have some upgraded steering parts.
The leak is coming from where the shaft coming from the steering wheel enters the box.
Is there a seal kit? (I have the kit already for the pitman arm side) Or is it time to change the box?
-- Anyone have a rebuilt, used etc 4 bolt for the LHD 1989 110?
-- Does the box from 94-97 NAs fit?

eBay is being a little difficult. Disco 1 is 1990-1994 right? eBay seems to think it's 94-99.
Still having trouble tracking something down.

94-99 is Disco 1, great! a lot more options. So if I buy the box fro a Disco 1, It will bolt in? And I just have to pull the pitman arm off, and replace it with my 1989 Defender 110 Pitman arm?

Yes. Getting the pitman arm off is usually an absolute beeotch. If its still driveable what many do is loosten the nut about an 1/8 inch and drive the truck a bit to get the tapered shaft/pitman forced fit to loosen. Same trick works well for rear axle ball joint.

Range Rover Classic 87-95 is also same box.
