Tighten Steering Box?

Anybody got an idea on this? Heading for a long road trip in September and need some help if you do. I recently, replaced all my front axle ball joints, tie and steering arm ends on my 2002 F-350 4x4. Now it steers way too easy and seems to have dead slack in steering box. Everything running smooth alignment checked. Just seems like slack in the box. Is there an adjustment screw on the steering boxes to allow slack adj or tightening? Thanks.
