On a side note, if you do find your steering box to need replaced. Maybe give the place who did your alignment some grief about it. I know where I work we won't align vehicles with sloppy steering boxes. Unless of course we notify the customer first and they still want it done.
Lol, That would be an expensive steering box... but I could use the spare parts.. and a spare 360mag with 70K on it may come in handy.

Any idea what a complete assembly ( shaft/box ) is going to cost me at the local parts store?

Thanks for the reply.. any more feedback appreciated .
