If you have been following the thread "steering box" you know what this is about. If not, and your steering box screw has reached its limit, please familiarize your self with the thread. Masterminded a group buy about four months ago and since then, folks who missed it have been clamoring for another. Well, maybe not clamoring but if we can order 10 kits, I can offer them at $325 each plus shipping. (W&N is $700 plus shipping) The only caveat is the supplier is backordered at this time and the wait will be 6 to 7 weeks.
Courtesy of FAQ member "0257" a description is below. Please note, I am not making any claims as to whether your steering experience will be radically improved with this kit. I'll only say that three of the best 02 mechanics in the midwest have ordered multiple kits and are in on this group buy as well.
Please PM me if you want one. And since I personally finance this I would appreciate a firm commitment before I place the order -after which time I'm on the hook.I don't ask for payment until I have the kits on hand and am ready to ship. I'll let this float out there for a week or so, and then place the order - assuming we reach ten.
