Wink But...I thought....

Mine is an 82', so far my steering is OK. But its likely that soon I'll be doing the steering. I too think the stock box is over-assisted and would like a firmer feel to steering. Is there a good S-10 box that will bolt up strongly to a newer model? I had always heard a mid-90's box would work for mine.

Is this not true, because rebuilds are only like $100 I keep notes on swaps for future reference in case I get Alzheimers.

It doesn't look like it would be too difficult to drill out the inside. Maybe support with a section of tubing.
