Higher ratio Steering box

Im going to be replacing my 42 year old steering box in my 72. Anyone have any suggestions of an upgrade I can do here?

 

Basically driving the 72 feels like I'm steering a 10000 foot yacht. Meaning it is slow and it seems it takes 2 rotations to accomplish one rotation. Its probably an exaggeration but I think you get the idea. I'm looking for a higher ratio or faster turning steering box.

 

Can anyone give me some recommendations on a steering box, better or worse brands, and who I might buy one from?

I sent my P.S. gear to Lee Power Steering in Sun Valley, CA. They remanufactured it and converted it to quick ratio. 3.5 turns, lock to lock. http://lee-powersteering.com/

THANKS Doug!

 

Anyone else got a suggestion? I'm hoping I can just buy a replacement that's already modified or maybe some after market product.

Lares offers rebuilds of the 3.5. I need to dig up the part number from my receipt - picked it up from Advanced Auto.

How to buy a '71-73 Mustang:

Rule #1: Assume all classic car sellers are guilty until proven innocent.

Rule #2: No classic car dealer is ever innocent; thus, they are all guilty.
