FYI-Need to rebuild your IFS steering box. You can get the seal kit from Toyota. Here is the PN for the box on my 90. Cost, around $50.00. :grinpimp:

i remember there being more discussion in this thread...deleted for why?
is this the complete rebuild kit or is the guy from texas mentioned here the guy to get it from?

::edit:: from the website since the link is being picky...
The first thing you need is a seal kit. The only place in the known universe to get a complete kit is from:

I do not know if John is still selling them. When I bought mine from him, it was complete OEM parts.

The PN I pictured was for a later style and it was complete.

I know nothing about the aftermarket kit, but I do know that when I bought an aftermarket from NAPA for my PS pump it was a POS and started leaking two days later. Purchased a OEM kit from the dealer and it was still going strong a couple of years later when I took it off and put the PSC TC pump on.

These kits only come with all the seals, nothing else like bearings or parts for the relife valve.

Can anyone confirm that this kit works on '86-'89 steering boxes? I called my local dealer and they told me the seals are only available individually. I've got a call into my preferred dealer to see if they have any better info.

my local dealer told me the same thing but you give them the part # on the bag and they will show it and want mucho cashola. trdparts4u.com has it for 40 bux. the kit is the same for all ifs boxes 86-95.5 all the orings/seals inside are identical as far as i have seen. i pinched the piston o ring on my early 86-88 box when i tapped it. i had a late 89-95.5 box that had a leaky input seal so i pulled the o ring off and used it after comming to the conclusion that all the seals matched up including the input (sector shaft) seal.

Thought I would post this in here as well. This info is for the '86-'89 boxes:

From talking to my dealer friend, Toyota offers two kits for this box. The first kit is a partial kit and only covers the sector shaft seals. The part # for the partial kit is 04455-35020(~$50). The part number for the full kit which has all of the seals for the whole box including the input shaft seals and everything is 04445-35080(~$100).

when i tapped mine it wasnt too bad but now that im running the high output tc style pump the seals in the box are showing their ass. i ordered the one seal from napa # nos7007 p/s worm shaft seal today for $4 an im going to try to get by with that for our 1st annual fattshack turkey day run.

i have a tc style pump which calls for synthetic ps fluid. ive always ran dexron mercron type atf in the p/s system untill upgrading. i figure that may be why it leaks, something about the switch the seals were pissed off at.

i was exaggerating alot, i bought a case of synpower p/s fluid when i got the pump because it was cheap, it doesnt leak that bad , just enough to attract a crapload of dust. and i got the seal from napa , heres a pic of the leaky input on the box and the seal i got from napa.





oh and i totally understand your point about that... post edited.

Mine leaks down off of the shaft for the pitman arm. Does that mean I screwed up the teflon seal on the inside while tapping for hydro?
