This is one of the beefiest steering boxes we've seen. The first thing you notice when you just LOOK at this box is the HUGE sector shaft, like nothing we've seen before! This sector shaft coupled with the upgraded internals will help to eliminate the Dodge steering wander issues that have plagued them for years. If you are running a lift kit that requires a dropped pitman arm, you will have to replace your existing pitman arm with one designed for this larger gear box. Another option for those with a 4-6" lift, is to install our Pure Performance steering linkage upgrades that actually uses a stock pitman arm, because it properly corrects the steering geometry, without the need for a dropped pitman arm. Also, if you have a steering box brace, you have several options as the original box will not work with this box. First, you can just take it off as in many cases, you will no longer need it with the beefier box. Secondly, you can order an entirely new brace designed to work with this steering box. And finally, you can order a new sector shaft extension nut designed to work with the larger sector shaft, and in most cases, you will also need to reposition the bearing capture plate which involves cutting it off and re-welding it in the proper place. And as always, if you have any questions about proper fitment with your particular application give us a call.

I purchased this product for my 4"" lifted truck. What dropped pitman arm do I need for this upgrade??
You would need a drop pitman arm for a 09-12 truck 2500/3500. I do have some available give us a call.
Does the pitman arm that comes with the box work with the 08.5+ steering linkage upgrade??
Yes it sure does!
I would be installing the heavy duty steering gearbox on a 2006 Dodge 2500 Cummins. The from end has been completely replaced with Moog parts. The truck suspension is stock and does not have a lift kit. Will this installation require any additional parts other than what is included with the kit??
No sir nothing else is needed for the install. I would recommend a steering box stabilizer for the new box to increase its longevity.
You mention that we can buy a steering brace compatible for this unit, which brace is bolt in compatible??
The one that we recommend is the BD Diesel Brace # BD-1032007.
If you are using the 2008.5+ T-style linkage with this steering gear, does the ball joint that attaches to the new pitman arm face down like on the old oem linkage??
That is correct yes.
Who pays for the core to be shipped to you??
The return of the core charge is up to the customer.
What is the part number for the correct upgraded bolts? What size are they??
These don't require updated bolts. The OEM installed bolts fasten these boxes.
Is there supposed to be bolt spacers in the frame for attaching the new gearbox? I had an odd gearbox on mine that had much smaller bolts and goofy spacers through the frame.?
These should not require spacers or different bolts.
