Steering Box Comparison

Our Fun Buggy project was originally built with a steering gearbox with a ram assist. Since it now gets trailered everywhere and we want to add a front triangulated four-link suspension, we are converting it to full hydro. The first step was replacing the steering gearbox with the hydraulic steering valve, also known as an orbital valve. We have wondered why no one makes an adapter plate to bolt an orbital valve in place of many common steering boxes on the frame rail, so we had the R&D department at Synergy Suspension make us a custom adapter.
