I thought I'd seen some rebuild kits for these.. at least for Toyota's for sure. Anyone done one and have any personal experience to share? Is it worth it or just buy new? I've started to leak power steering fluid and yesterday, I happened to notice that there seems to be a gap now between the actual pitman arm and the bottom of the Steering box allowing me to see a rather shiny part of the gearing which I am almost positive isnt right and besides the leak giving it away, it seems out of adjustment. I'll try and grab a pic during the morning time.

Bonus Question:

Is there any differences between the 4WD steering box vs the 2WD? I have one that I could/would go through the trouble to rebuild on the bench minimizing downtime if possible.. thoughts?
