06 2500 steering box upgrade??

Anyone have an after market steering box upgrade? Tight one? Or a company that rebuilds them? Did all my front end parts and still some play, kinda want to tighten it up.

I replaced mine with a redhead steering box and am pretty happy with it. Others on here have also used this brand, check them out.

I've had AC Delco re-manufactured (2), PSC (2), and RedHead (1).

PSC makes a stout box that looks to be the best engineered. I believe my experience was simply unlucky. The guy I worked with Lance, was fantastic.

The RedHead box simply works, and works like it should, it's accurate and a blessing to solve at least part of my steering woes.

PSC all the way. I run PSC in my rock crawler. can turn 42" TSL's while jeep is on iits side with two fingers. They can rebuild your box and pump if needed. I have read a few people on here that sent theirs to them and it was unbeleivable when they got it back. Thats where mine will be going when needed.

X2 on getting one from Redhead


Yes, you just order one, they send it, you install and send back the core to get your deposit back.
