Has anyone replaced their steering gear with anything other than the '7X Trans Am boxes? The only number I have seen on the torsion bar is 18 in.lb and this doesn't seem to stack up as the stock 9C1/SS is 22 in.lb If anyone has any information on this other than "it's the best darn box out there," do post.
It certainly seems like a YA would be a more likely candidate if you are replacing the whole box since it has a comparable range of motion. I am looking for just the rods, so if anyone knows a dealer of Saginaw 800 parts post it for us.

This is a list of info on the 12.7 ratio steering boxes that I have data on
