I have a 2000 Dodge Ram with the 5.9L V8 with 4WD. I am in the middle of replacing the steering gear(box) because the seal on the output shaft on the pitman arm failed and started leaking power steering fluid. I ordered a new steering gear from parts train. My problem is this. We compared the amount of turns from lock to lock on the steering input shaft of the steering gear(boxes). The old gear turned approx. 3 and 1/4 turns from lock to lock. The new gear only turns 1 and 1/2 have turns from lock to lock. The output shaft also turns less on the new box. The part numbers and markings are identical on both. Is it possible that the stops in the old box failed? or do I have the wrong part? Any help would be great!!
