Stainless Top Plate, with Stainless Hardware
These plates replace the stock top plate that contains the adjuster on the Samurai boxes. When you get water in the box, these are one of the few pieces that is not coated in oil, and we find that these rust badly on the inside. These updated stainless plates are also tapped deeper to clear our extended steering box vent kit. Comes with plate, stainless hardware, swivel push-lock fitting for the vent, and a length of hose so you can extend the vent out of the way of any water intrusion.
A breakdown of what we currently offer for the manual steering box that comes stock in the Suzuki Samurai. Some people are going with power steering, but when the goal is simplicity, manual steering is sufficient. For those with tires over 33" we recommend not only swapping to power steering, but also consider a different steering box and possibly ram-assist steering, especially if the truck spends a lot of time in the rocks.
We have excellent quality seals for both the bottom output (near pitman arm) and the top input (to the steering shaft). We also offer direct-fit bearings (new race supplied) if your box has seen water and needs a bearing replacement. Brass bushings aren't included as they rarely wear and new ones need to be pressed in and reamed to size before use.
Occasionally we will have in stock a small number of rebuilt/restored steering boxes. These have been completely cleaned, checked for cracks and rust, and reassembled with new bearings, seals and top plate. All of our steering boxes come with our extended breather and stainless hardware for the top adjuster plate. Your choice of stock top plate or our stainless one.

Point-and-shoot is a phrase for cameras. But it certainly doesn't hurt when your Suzuki steering works that way!

Steering Box Top Plate Bolts (Stainless)
These kits come in a number of different ways. We can offer these with our stainless top plate, or without. Without the modified plate, the stock plate will need to be tapped slightly larger to make the fitting fit properly (Suzuki tapped these shallow from the factory- threads are tapered and need to be opened up a bit more. Standard pipe thread tap will work for this). Comes with a length of push to connect tubing (you choose length), push to connect fitting, a vent cap and a handful of zip ties to help with routing/mounting. Call for more info, we can change the tubing size (we offer 6mm standard) or fitting (straight, 45deg, 90deg).
