I got one from the wreckers for my last truck and had it rebuilt... put it on the truck and it was tight when you turned the wheel one way. The rebuild sucked. After 6 months it was leaking everywhere.
I finally found a place that did a decent job. I guess if you just clean it up and replace the seals, some places call that a rebuild. Because it's such a pain to get on and off, doing it just once would be nice.
I've decided to pull the box and replace just the two seals for now. Nothing wrong with it otherwise, and I don't have the time right now to be down for a week. Would have been nice to wait till I had time for a full overhaul, because I'd like to replace the steering shaft too, apparently there's a bushing in it that wears out... my steering is a little looser than I'd like, but right now I just don't have the time (or the parts)
