The older trucks pre '99 maybe? For trailer pulling, I'm running 4. To correct this I installed a Borgeson steering gearbox and shaft. My truck had an aftermarket 2 shock system that would not clear the new diff cover so I ordered a new single from Carli Bilstien single setup I have plans to finish that over the 4th of July weekend. Your system does have gains at the linkage to resist toe-change. These Dynatrac Ball Joints provide higher strength, longer life and once installed can be rebuilt without special tools. Still needs some stuff done don't they all but gets used a lot.
Also over the fourth we will be installing my own 4 link Parts complementary of Ballistic Fabrication. I've considered this for my Ram 3500, would use it for better fuel mileage when empty. Make sure your T-linkage has the safe tie-rod ends and not the tie-rod ends that Mopar recalled. This kit is for the steering linkage only! I've been setting up Saginaw integral worm-and-recirculating ball or power piston gears for a very long time, and I would not compromise here. These kits tie the front wheels together eliminating independent toe in and out. Plus, the Mopar box seems to extend from the frame further than the factory box.
I will have a 2010 truck in my shop tomorrow and I can measure and post a stock size for reference. To help correct caster, bottom arms are fully adjustable on the truck while top arms only require the removal of one bolt to allow adjustment. To help correct caster, bottom arms are fully adjustable on the truck while top arms only require the removal of one bolt to allow adjustment. Moses To date, I have no issues with the stock pump. Drove it 7 miles to Firestone and had them align it.
Secondly, you can order an entirely new brace designed to work with this steering box. I have not been behind the wheel of a Dodge that drives as well as this one. I got this to work on a 98 so, it should go on 94-00 also. Does the bearing plate have a replaceable, permanently sealed bearing? 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. Plus, it is adjustable to accommodate up to 4 lifts! Folks need a reliable, consistent method for upgrading the steering. We can move to the welding category to expand on that subject.
A longer shot is binding axle shaft steering knuckle joints. If the '09-up pump is the fix, we need to verify the pump mounting for the 6. The Steering Box Stabilizer is silver vein powder coated for corrosion resistance, and features a greasable, high-quality bearing for reliable operation. Have these joints been replaced? The funny marks at the top of the tapered hole are where the rod end threads bumped it as it came out. Ideal for trucks pulling fifth wheel trailers or carrying a large camper.
I like your priorities in any case: family safety! Thanks much, and great to have your feedback! Please contact us if you have any questions. As for service history etc. Do you have a Cummins? I have about 3 inches of lift on my truck and I'm still running the stock pitman. Fabtech or Superlift, each had a Ram truck recall that involved Mopar, apparently. Has the free-wheeling hub arrangement helped mileage much? Is the conversion kit a full-floating spindle design? Thanks for clarifying the need for a new dropped pitman arm with the Mopar upgrade gear, I sensed that was the case from our earliest discussion. It started acting normal again after the next red light I hit, even through sharp turns. Suggested Wheels and Tire Sizes: 2009-2012 Models: 4.
The original 03-08 nut will not fit it, nor will the factory style pitman arm. I didn't notice and wear or play in the steering knuckle joints and I'm pretty sure the axle shafts aren't the issue. I don't seem to have much play in mine yet so I spent that money on a Steering dampener kit from Carli haha. Although it's another topic, those things are a work of art and worth every penny. The T-19 makes sense with its synchro on all four forward speeds, an edge over the T18. The factory box was shot, and it was a miracle that it hadn't broke off. Any other options that are stronger than stock? Frame flex causes your steering to be sluggish or slow in turning.
If I turned the wheel 180 o in one direction and let go it would spring back almost 90 o. Write up with pictures to follow. Front tires were a bit over-inflated 70psi brought those down to 60. I have an '06 2500 that really needs the new steering upgrade. This was annoying at best, and when towing, actually fatiguing. The sector shaft diameter, at the splines, is way larger than the factory one. Mopar's replacement gear is just what I want! Regardless, I'll work with Mopar to get this gear kit.
The kit offers many advantages including a dramatic improvement in steering response and feel. Thanks for the idea Bryson! I have owned this truck now for about 2 years. We also offer a revised pitman arm. I will research it as time goes, but any outside help or knowledge would be appreciated. There are a variety of approaches. Attached are a couple pictures from my 2006 3500. This will also prevent a newly installed gear box from getting this problem.
