I need to rebuild or replace the powersteering valve body assembly on my car as mine leaks all the time. I can buy a rebuilt one from CJ pony for 150 plus core or rebuild myself for about 45 dollars. Or i found one a advantage auto for $99 less $50 from my core, so a net of $50 and a 1 yr warrenty. Of course they have one for $149 less $45 core that have a lifetime warrenty. So what do you think and what do you think the real difference is between the 1yr and life time warranty units.

My power steering doesn't leak (knock on wood). I replaced all the hoses and used a rebuilt control valve from Auto Zone.

I rebuilt my girlfriend's 67cpe in March and was suprized how eazy it went, all done in about an hour. To tell the truth, if I had plenty of money, I would've just bought a rebuild and do a simple R&R.
