Who to rebuild sloppy previously-Lee-rebuild steering box?
I've got a 12.7:1 box in my Caprice wagon. It was rebuilt by Lee Manufacturing 25-30K miles ago, back in ~'13. (Of course I can't find the receipt to be sure.) It's developed on-center slop. I've adjusted the little nut on top of the box a couple times. Each time it gets better, for a while, but then it becomes sloppy again in short order. And now it's to the point where the nut doesn't turn easily, and I don't want to force it.
I called up Lee Manufacturing (which changed ownership several years back, after my box had been rebuilt), and the guy I spoke to said that they normally charge $350 to rebuilt a steering box, but if mine had so few miles since its last rebuild, it would probably be cheaper. He said that they are pretty backed up and that it would likely take 1-2 weeks for them to get my box done, so I'd be without my wagon for a bit.
Should I have my box rebuilt by the new staff at Lee, or go somewhere else?
