Default Steering box gasket?

Hi

Have been snooping around on this forum a couple of times and thought that now was the time to register.

I have a jap. Samurai 1,3l from 88, softtop. The steeringbox has started leaking from the bottom gasket (where the pitmans arm is located). Is there a kit or gasket of some sort that I can order online that fixes this problem?
Kind regards

We have access to Re-manufactured steering boxes here.

1988 SUZUKI SAMURAI Steering Gear

A rebuild KIT (consisting of the software items) would probably be more to your liking though.

I'd do a search in that area...

Hi

Thanks
but the kit at low rang is for a power steering box and not my not powered steering box.

And other takers on this one?

Then a local to you Suzuki Dealer for the part, or maybe a clean and RTV re-seal?

I'd call or e-mail them to be sure that is all that they stock.

That's a whole different critter then. I was thinking an "O" ring gasket-ed (seal), thus my RTV ref.
