WELCOME EARLY BRONCO ENTHUSIASTS!

WHAT POWER STEERING BOX SHOULD YOU USE?


The box that you use will depend on what size tires you are running or plan to run in the future. Sure you can get away with running a stock box with 37" for a while but it won't be long and it will start to leak or the shaft will start to twist. 

The STOCK BOX  was only an option for the 73-77 Bronco but is found on many 66-77 Broncos, and was designed to turn 28" tires. Today there are not many stock boxes available, their were not many available to began with because there were an option in the last few years of the Bronco. We wouldn't recommend using this box for tires bigger than 33". This box is a direct bolt in.

The INTERNATIONAL SCOUT BOX   is found on many Scouts, and was designed to turn 28" tires. It looks like the Bronco box but the bolt pattern is backwards 2 bolts in the front and one in the rear. This box can't be bolted on as is it will need to be converted to steer the correct way. This box will bolt to the frame on the out side and you will need to drill 3 new holes and use a smaller u-joint.

The DELPHI BOX This box is found on Nissan's and Toyota's is new and has 4 mounting bolts but is designed for small tires. The mounting ears have a tendency to break off when stressed, the fittings are metric and it requires a different pitman arm. We wouldn't recommend using this box for tires bigger than 33". This box will bolt to the frame with 3 out of the 4 holes but requires other modifications.

The F100 4x2 BOX  this box is found on 73-83 trucks and strong enough for big tires but too long to mount correctly to the frame, under frame brackets are available but puts extra stress on your frame and because the box is longer it will inner fear with the tie rods, when they are over the knuckles and for the price you buy the box and under frame brackets you could just buy the better box. You will also have to smash the driver side of the radiator because the box fits on the inside of the frame. You can use a stock pitman arm. We wouldn't recommend using this box at all. This box will not bolt to the frame without lots of work.

The F150 4x4 BOX this box is found on 75-79 F150 and 78-79 big Bronco and is strong enough for big tires and fits on the frame but was designed for a forward facing pitman arm, when installed in an Early Bronco and you turn the steering wheel left the tires go right. You can use a stock pitman arm. You can't use this box without converting. This box uses the stock front mounting hole, because the box has a  wider and stronger mounting surface the two rear holes need to be re-drilled.

The F150 4X4X2 CONVERSION BOX  this box is strong enough for big tires and fits on the frame and because it has a 4X2 gear inside the 4X4 box it turns the correct way You can use a stock pitman arm. We run this Box on All of our Broncos and on our Baja Race Bronco and have never had a problem with one. This box came on hundreds of thousands of F150 4X4's and big Broncos so their are more parts available for them. If you have both boxes Here is how to convert them. We would recommend using this box for tires smaller than 38" This box uses the stock front mounting hole, because the box has a  wider and stronger mounting surface the two rear holes need to be re-drilled.

FRAME REIFORCEMENT KIT
Sometimes our 30+ year old Broncos can develop cracks in the frame where the power steering gear bolts on. Its not hard to imagine the stresses this part of the frame is constantly being cycled through. Adding larger tires and more powerful steering gears can make the problem even worse. This kit adds needed reinforcement to the critical area of the frame where the steering gear attaches. We're making it easy for anyone to strengthen or repair this part of their Bronco's frame with minimal fabrication (although installation will require grinding and welding). The beefy 1/4" thick frame reinforcement plate is drilled for both the stock Bronco and the popular F-150 power steering box. Rosette weld the unused holes for added strength. Also included are three (3) .25" wall bolt tubes, three (3) grade 8 hex head cap bolts and three (3) Nylock nuts. This reinforcement kit is a recommended repair for Broncos that have already developed cracks in the frame, as well as a preventative measure for those that haven't YET.
