Steering box

Well this week I've been attacking the defender, so far replace all brake disks, calipers, pads, wheel bearings, with only one rusty bolt that snapped! Today I'm taking out and was going to replace all the seals on the steering box because it keeps making nice stains on the driveway. I've heard that the seal kits are hit or miss and sometimes its just best to buy a new/rebuilt one, so anyone know best place to buy a new/rebuilt one if I head down that route..??

Thanks in advance.

meridian, $265 and my 110 with it drives much better than my 90 that still has the old style in it.

So, do oyu specify the model year you are looking for (eg mine is a '94) or do you choose a newer model to get the newer style gearbox?

Mine has a puddle too.

Just specify your year. Being in California you will have it right away.
