Blujeans is on a distinguished road
Default '85 power steering

Hi, looking for some advice. I have a Dodge Ram D-100 custom, two wheel drive slant 6. The power steering box has been leaking for a while and I need to replace it. Down the road I want to do a big block swap. My steering has a lot of play to it, and I'll need to be able to handle all that horsepower with a decent box. Any suggestions as far as where to buy quality steering boxes, or if I could get a more heavy duty compatible box? Thanks guys.

Not sure to answer your question, but I know steering boxes are in general fairly sloppy. Some slop could also be in the column and linkage to the spindles...

Why ditch the six! You could build that up and have a VERY unique truck
