If you are looking for something a little more lively and are looking to reduce the weight of your front end, there are aluminium 16:1 factory boxes. Firm Feel did have new gears for them back in the day, dunno about anymore. We've done a couple of cars (one with electronic steering assist built inline) with them and enjoyed them quite a bit with aggressive/modern steering settings (-1* Camber 7-9* Caster with just a touch of toe and modern tires of 275 aspect and up) They are a great vendor and know their stuff.
Borgeson has come out with 14.7:1 Power boxes that are 7lbs lighter than the stock power boxes and quite a few of us have quickened them up with Q/R arms as well, netting a great driving package.

I personally have no experience with PST, or Flaming River outside of their steering columns, which are pretty good.


Dan-o, where in AZ are you at? I am in beautiful Gilbert


I live in Gilbert, Cooper and Warner.

You are very close to my office.

I live next to San Tan Mountain, in what used to be called Chandler Heights

I used to go down to the park at Lindsay road and Chandler Heights road to walk and take pictures. That's probably 7 miles south and a couple miles east of where I live. The Chandler Heights neighborhood is south of that.
