    P/S Gears

    What are your opinions on the better than stock steering gears? I am thinking about changing mine out before the cruise season starts in 2019 so help me out to decide on a good one!

    I put a stage 2 in my 73 charger and honestly I couldn`t tell much difference.

    When I got mine 8 or 9 years ago it leaked every kind of fluid. I tried to do a complete rebuild of my steering box and got it wrong so I got a stage 1 from Firm Feel. I love it. For them, stage 1 is firmer than factory, but it's still a 70s American car. I probably should have gone with a 2, but it was still worth doing a 1.

    I've been on that box ever since. At least 2.5 of those years and about 34,000 miles, this car was my daily. It's still strong, accurate, and not leaking.

    I am assuming that stage 2 is a firm feel unit?

    For what it's worth, I put a FF stage 2 in my Aspen and am happy with it. HUGE improvement over the stock one I overhauled. BTW, I will NEVER overhaul a p.s gear ever again.

    Honestly it was so long ago i don`t remember. It was either Steer and Gear or Firm Feel. Needless to say I was disappointed. At least some of the play was gone and it didn`t leak. Maybe I just got a crappy unit. I wasn`t about to take it back out again.
