Default Best Replacement Steering Box

Whats is the best replacement steering box for our truck? My input seal is leaking, I don't know if I can fix my box or have to replace it, but I don't want to get in to problem of swapping out junk boxes every other mouth. Any suggestions?

I'm gonna try a flush and stop leak, my box is leaking at the shaft too because of an out of balance tire.. if that doesn't work then red head.

I hadn't heard of BlueTop before, it doesn't look bad. Do they do the same mods to them as RedHead? Does anyone make a quality quick ratio box? I wouldn't be against that, if its not priced threw the moon.

I take it those guys in your area have good reports of the blue top?
