This steering box IS the solution to the sloppy vague steering of the '94 - '02 Dodge pickups. My '01 2500 4X4 with 230K miles, was a wanderer since new and was a bear to park as the power assist was poor at low speed. I replaced the first box at 120K miles with poor results. When I saw this box I thought I would give it a try... Best money I have ever spent on my rig. It now drives and parks like a dream.
A must for 2nd gen Dodge owners

What can I say? You all are aware of the problems with FWD 2nd Gen Dodge Ram front ends. I have been struggling with mine for years, but now I have it licked! This box IS A MUST if you want you're Ram to drive like it should. It is tight, good road feel, 0 play. IT IS AWESOME!!!Here is the formula for the rest of it. 1)Make sure all tie rods and ball joints are good or better yet new. 2) Replace stabilizer end links and stabilizer bar bushings. 3) Replace frame side track bar mount and track bar (XDP Item Number: BD103201) 4) Go rocksolidramtrucksteering.com and get the column bushing. 5) Get a Borgeson steering shaft (Item Number: BO000945) 6) Get a steering box stabilizer (Item Number: BD1032004) AND YOUR TRUCK WILL NEVER HAVE THE WOBS AND WILL DRIVE BETTER THAN FACTORY!!!!
Better Than New Steering

My 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 4x2 with 140,000 miles had developed a bit of play in the steering gearbox causing mild wandering on the freeway. This was annoying at best, and when towing, actually fatiguing. To correct this I installed a Borgeson steering gearbox and shaft.
I'm happy to report they're everything Borgeson claims they are. All play and wandering are now GONE and overall the steering is better than when the truck was new. The steering feel is smooth as silk with reduced effort compared to before the upgrade. It now takes fewer turns of the steering wheel to go from wheel lock-to-lock ,which is nice when maneuvering in tight parking lots.
This is definitely a worthwhile upgrade once you've made sure any other worn steering components have been replaced or adjusted first.
Be sure and follow the installation instructions to the letter, especially the part about accurately centering the gearbox before installing on the truck. Make sure it stays centered no matter where the front wheels point when you bolt everything together. After installation, a professional steering alignment is required.

Been needing a new steering box for quite sometime, but dreading a parts store reman ( wash it, replace the seals and slap a price tag on it.. For some reason, a lot of people dont understand the difference between rebuilt, and reman ). Or a box from the dealer..
Swapped this into the truck, along with the matching steering shaft and a DSS steering brace ( requires a bit of grinding, but very do able ). This truck has never drove so nice, no wander, absolutely no play in the steering wheel.. Best money I've spent on the truck in a very long time..
