I know its been discussed before but I couldn't find the information. What companies do the rebuilding of the power steering boxes for our cars? Also does anybody know if its possible to have it upgraded from the 12.7:1 ratio to an even quicker ratio maybe 10:1? - Peter

Be careful what you ask for--too-fast a ratio gets REALLY tricky, especially driving on the street & around other vehicles.

FWIW, I have experience only with Lee Power Steering (Lee Manfacturing)--none with TurnOne, so I admit a bias up-front.
