Hi Dan, what type of steering is it, Garrison, Ross, Vickers??

Upon replacing the "O" rings, did you notice any scratches or gouges in the bore or the piston? Were any springs and check valves in decent shape and work freely? Trash in the system is a big culprit that leads to failure.

I'm assuming your truck is either a "B" or early "R" series. I haven't seen a good rebuild kit for these drag links in years, but they are not hard to put together from off the shelf parts. I bored, and sleeved one of mine but have not used it yet.

Its a factory install on my B61LT. I will have to take it a part and look at it one more time, and look at the springs and valves

thanks Dan
