Having problems with your GMC Sierra ?
1996 gmc sierra shortbox. Steering gear is leaking. Is it repairable? Is there a gasket? how do you repair it if so.
There are seal kits you can purchase through either GM or any other parts store. The one most common would be the seal that seals around the shaft for the pitman arm. The seal kit will come with all other seals necessary for a re-seal. Double check and clean the unit with brake parts cleaner prior to buying anything to determine which area is at fault. If you need any other instructions or diagrams. The kit runs about $45.
Is the gear box leaking or the metal power steering line leaking. Yes you can repair these. Although it is quite a bit easier to go to the salvage yard and get a new gear box. A little cheaper to fix the gear box, but very hard to get the new gasket in without ruining it. A lot of times it is just the metal line leaking though.
