2000 Frontier XE Steering Gear Replacement

420 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  smj999smj

I changed my Steering gear last December from the 17 year old original to a Oreilly's Remanufactured One.
After just 7 months, The main shaft seal is leaking at the pitman arm.

(yes, replaced pump and hoses too with new fluid.)

I was wondering what other issues might caused this other than I got a "lemon" from the Oreilly's?

I use the standard Power steering fluid but maybe I need the import fluid?

Possible other issues with the Suspension that might stress out the shaft seal?

I just use it for light street, no off roading.

Thank you for your input
