Steering Box

thinking of going ahead and getting a new steering box for a 2005 excursion. Was originally going to get a redhead, but have seen too many bad reviews recently. Any other good options?

Mine is getting a little sloppy as well. 2006 F250 with 122k on it. Anybody try the Cardone brand that is sold on Rockauto? Seems they beefed up the internals of this brand.

I am gonna try to tighten mine but looks like someone has tighten previous to my owning the truck as there is now 2 nuts on the bolt down there...

If all else fails, I will need info on the best brand to grab if not MC or Redhead.

Yea give her a little turn of the screw, it made a nice improvement on my truck for sure.
These boxes get loose early in my opinion. I was getting death wobble from it at 80 something thousand miles ????
My old Cheyenne went 200,000 miles with 36/15.50/15 on it before needing the screw cranked in. ????seems to be very common for our trucks.

Interesting... Well, I will give it a go once I tear out the air box and IC tube on that side... Been meaning to do this for a while, I have had a new IC tube to replace my cracked one for a while now... Toddlers and teenagers around this house keep me too dayum busy... LOL

Redhead, hands down.

I picked one up in 2012 from their shop in Seattle and install it. 20K later no issues. I saw what they do to the new boxes and I like what I saw. Never regretted my purchase. it's been up and down the Alcan Hwy twice, was subjected to -47 in Fairbanks and countless turns!
