This steering upgrade is known to alleviate slop, alleviate some cases of bump steer, and even prevent death wobble in certain applications.
If you are moving from the factory 2003-2008 Y style steering(non 08.5+) you must order the updated pitman arm for the correct geometry.
This Mopar Big Box fits 2003-2008 Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks and offers improved durability and strength compared to the factory steering box. This price includes the core charge, since typically customers do not have a box to send back.
Dodge Ram trucks are notorious for steering issues and wear because people often use inferior grade parts to replace the factory units when they eventually wear out. The Mopar Big Box is an OEM new box that is up to the task. Unlike many re-manufactured boxes that are simply re-built, this is a brand new product assembled and produced by Mopar.
In our experience this box is a fantastic and durable solution for trucks seeing heavy use, or trucks that have 35" or 37” ties that put more strain on the steering parts. The larger internals and massive sector shaft have no issues bearing the additional load!
This box does require the larger, included pitman arm since the sector shaft is larger than the OEM. This box typically requires a modified box brace due to the sector shaft size as well. In our experience we don’t find them to be necessary with this box on 03-08 Ram trucks. This box also works with the factory steering pump.
