Planning to have Redhead rebuild a ‘91 steering gearbox with a 105 sector and pitman arm. From what I can gather, the ‘91 through ‘97 steering boxes are the same. Is there any reason I can’t or shouldn’t use the ‘91 box on an LX450?

Other than possibly wear due to mileage, the boxes are the same. The input section will be the only thing left to have wear, and I've not seen any sign of wear on any of the ones I've looked at. I rebuilt a '91 box for my '94, and have rebuilt later boxes, and saw no differences.

I have had 5 different boxes and they're interchangeable but some seem sloppier than others, presumably due to ball screw wear. No way to predict that though
