Good find. I should save that. They are all 700 boxes and the list of donors is pretty long.

I've been running the XH box forever. The XH with only 64 degrees of travel via it's internal stops keeps the fat tires from rubbing the sway bar, or in the rear the frame at full lock. This limits turning radius but on my car not an issue. Also the XH is the highest effort box on that page, something I like. But i did have to jack up the pressure/flow from the P/S pump, the assist couldn't keep up to the box at low speed-low rpm. Still running the original pump installed at the factory, but has been "refreshed", and modded.

That is a nice breakdown. I saved it. I found a breakdown not as comprehensive but similar on thirdgen.org this spring when trying to re-fresh myself and get details on the XH boxes. In my wagon I went from the stock 605 box to a F-41 quick ratio box (SS) to an XH box in a matter of a couple months, the last change to help avoid tire rub as much as possible. Happy I found a box in a 16" wheel 86' IROC that still had it's lines sealed up. Cleaned up and works nicely, probably had been in the yard 5-10 years.
