i took by power assisted steering off coz it makes it handle like a boat at high speed, sorry but i just sold it 6 weeks ago i also think that they have a specific gear ratio in the steering box when they are used....

find a power steering setup from xw-xc v8, change your steering column to xw onwards and fit the lot. easy enough.

I thought the bolt pattern for the steering box was different XR, XT, XW, XY, compared to XA to XF. :|

i have a reco xb box in mine (not power st) with the power steer gearing which makes it a 16-1 ratio, got it from the local gt shop $135 probably a bit dearer now.

was just thinking then i have a xc steering box in my trailer ready for the dump. i pulled it out and compared measurements to my xr box, they are different pattern. gt guy told me it was reco xb, obviously not, must be xw xy.
