What checks should you perform on the steering gear box?

A The steering box should not be missing any nuts, bolts, or cotter keys.
Explaination
When you turn the steering wheel, the steering gear box translates the rotation of the steering column into the turning of the wheels on the steering axle. When you inspect the steering, check that the steering box is securely mounted; neither it nor the hoses connected to it are leaking; and no nuts, bolts, or cotter keys are missing.
B Up to 1/4 of the steering parts may be broken.
C The steering box should not have mismatched, bent, or cracked lug nuts.
