Default steering box rebuild

anyone have a FSM pdf for an 86 and up steering box? Or perhaps a link to a good rebuild? I've been searching around and there really isn't much. I have heard stories about the "balls" getting out but I'm not sure where they are or if they even need to be touched to re-seal this thing. Frankly I'm not sure where its leaking from, its not the hydro fittings, so I figure a complete re-seal should do the trick. I found a thread on ih8mud but most guys just sent theirs out for rebuild, but I figured for 200 bucks they spent I can do that myself

it seems to be the only leak on my truck, I'd like to fix that

thanks!

I don't have the FSM, but I do have Gregory's, assuming it's a Land Cruiser.

I had one laying around but I believe it got tossed during the garage clean up. Burt Toyota had a kit ordered for me last year that I never picked up. I think it was around the $30 range. I have a extra 87 steering box that was leaking from the steering shaft input. I may go ahead and fix it and set it up for Hydro.

LMK how yours goes and I may rebuild mine ;-)
