Default Steering box questions

HI
I am new to this forum and have so questions about the steering box in my 99 2500 ram 8.0 v10 4x4. with in the last few weeks the steering box has started leaking mostly from the seal closest to the pit man arm. I called the local dodge dealership (they are a joke) and the said you can not buy a complete seal kit for my steering box. They have to order then one at a time. I priced two or three of the seals from them at 20-40$ a seal. That sounds really high to me. So my question is dose anyone know where I can get a rebuild kit or seal kit for my box.

Another opinion is a friend of mine has a parts truck but it is only a 1500 will that box work on my truck?

Yeah, that box will fit. But you'll have to change the pittman arm.

A new box will do the same thing over time. Add one of these to cure the problem. http://www.solidsteel.biz/dss.htm

It will also tighten up the steering so the truck wanders less.
