They don't have to be, they don't wear out

I will check with you in a year or so to see :wink: I was just curious because your pic made it look like you can open it up and it also has a grease zerk fitting...good idea.

I talked to gear one about a warranty and they said that they didn't really know because they've only ever had 1 box returned and they gave the guy a new one. So I'm hoping that this is the case. I wanted to wait for Alex's steering box but the car isn't safe to drive at the speeds I drive at right now

well that would be awesome if they are built that good to never fail....I assume they require an occasional greasing though to prevent wear from metal-on-metal contact....

where does the old grease go? I assume it gets pressed out into the rubber boots?

It's where the tie rods are in front of the spindle instead of the rear. Ill use the stock spindles but I'll have to swap them side to side to put the tie rid connection in front of the tire.
I'll post up pictures as I go or all of them at the end

I'm wondering what the advantages of going to front steer are?

Thanks for the compliments, I didn't build it. That's a utvinc cage but I built the roof and the tie rods. Next on the list is the steering rack, radiator relocate. Then I'm researching turbo's...... I gotta boost!
