I think they are expensive because they could be. No other competition, however the new rebuilt Dodge box is an all new design. I remember that the PCS has the capability for hydro assist, but most folks won't use that.

http://www.klmstore.com/mopar-681702...g-box-kit.aspx. is a description of the new box.

But it is a lot cheaper at wermopar

Okay now that my head is scrambled. If I go the Borgeson route those are rebuilt boxes with updates right? So I could just get the updated oem box with the larger shaft, get the new pitman arm and new shaft and I'd be where the Psc kit is? To use the 951 Borgenson shaft I'd need that new intermediate shaft too?

Also, should I be able to grab the bars the tre's are on and be able to twist them back and forth with like no effort?

I have been doing some extensive research on here and CF. Apparently the reason you don't see many people running the borgenson box, and why the box has different dimensions for bolting it up is because its not a dodge box. Its a late 90's GMC box. The reason why it won't work with the newer t style linkage is because the pitman arm is a GM one that they supply.

So, im kinda back to square one and now im starting to over think everything I think.

What I know- I need a new steering box. I don't really care if its the bigger one or not. The bigger one seems like its good and is holding up. PSC and OEM boxes seem to be the same. Apparently the borgenson 951 shaft will bolt on the OEM box no problem. It'd be great if someone could confirm this. Or I guess I'll have to be the test mule. I have found that the OEM box comes with a new pitman arm and drag link tie rod.

What I don't know- Will the borgenson shaft ACTUALLY fit the new OEM box. And Also, say I do go OEM, Im almost positive i don't need to upgrade anything else except my bearing on my steering brace right? The drag link end will fit in the adjustment sleeve?

okay, I think im going to solve my own headaches and save myself a little money.

heres what i'm 90% sure im doing. part number 68170214AA from wermopar. The new OEM box with the new pitman arm and drag link.

The new Mopar 68170214AA 2003- 2008 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 Steering Box Kit will stop:

the problems associated with poor steering response
leaking power steering fluid
steering wander
sluggish steering response

The Mopar 68170214AA 2003- 2008 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 Steering Box Kit works on the following Dodge Ram trucks:

2003 - 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 - Gas or Diesel
2003 - 2008 Dodge Ram 3500 4x4 - Gas or Diesel
2005 - 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 Megacab 4X4

The Mopar 68170214AA 2003- 2008 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 Steering Box Kit includes the following MOPAR parts:

1 - Complete Updated Steering Box
1 - Tie Rod End Assembly
1 - Pitman Arm


And I guess I'll get the full borgenson 951 shaft. I'm assuming it will fit because i haven't seen anyone else upgrading the shaft to make it work on theirs. So, when that and the control arms and the trackbar are done.. no more bump steer or wandering hopefully!

You need the Borgeson steering shaft #000951. The entire shaft.
The reason the PSC kit is so expensive, is that it IS the same gearbox that the newer trucks have, with the larger sector shaft & other stuff. The short Borgeson shaft that comes with it, is needed to connect the newer-larger gearbox to your #000951 shaft. The shaft is 2 pieces, so the only part that needs to be changed, is the lower shaft---which is why it is included. The pitman arm is included because the sector shaft inside the new & improved gearbox is MUCH bigger. Hope that helps.





The u-joint sections on the borgeson shaft are removable & replaceable as well.

Okay so if I get the oem upgrade kit thing, I will need the lower section of the shaft regardless it I get the Borgenson 951 shaft? Or do I not need it if I am getting the shaft. It's still cheaper to get the oem box upgrade, steering shaft, and the lower shaft if I need it than the Psc. It's just nice they have it grouped together

Yes you will need the lower section, if you have the new gearbox, regardless if you have the complete 951 Borgeson shaft. The reason is---the new & improved gearbox has a much bigger shaft diameter, where the splines are, so you need a new end on the steering shaft to fit it.

If you get an new exact replacement gearbox or have yours rebuilt by RedHead, you will not need the new lower section. But why would you do that ?
The crappy stock gearbox is the issue, or at least one of them, that contributes to the front end/steering issues that 03-09 2500/3500/Power Wagons get.
Yes, that is one of the reasons, probably, for their high price. It is a complete package. You KNOW that the pitman arm will fit & you KNOW that your 951 shaft will still work with the new gearbox because THEY give you the proper parts. PLUS, you don't have to deal with an idiot at the parts counter at the dealer. They can't do anything without the VIN # now. I can't imagine the nightmare of trying to order parts for a different truck without having a VIN #. They won't even sell me an oil filter without the VIN #, even though i can see it on the shelf & point to it & say "i need that one right there ! " To me, not having that aggrivation alone is worth $$.
The reason they did just the lower part of the shaft is, that MANY people have already installed the 951 shaft BEFORE the new & improved gearbox came out. They did not want to alienate all the people who already bought & installed them---like me for example. So, they include it in the kit.
Maybe you can call them & talk to them & explain that you need the upper part as well. Maybe the will sell you just the upper part, seeing as how the lower part is included in the kit. IDK if they will or not, but it is worth a phone call anyways.

You're the man twin. I appreciate you explaining that all. Wermopar sells the next updated box for 450 or so. That's with a new pitman arm and drag link. So I'll probably do that. And then the 951 shaft. But now I just need to source the lower part for the new box to fit the 951 shaft as I don't see it listed on Psc or borgesons. I'm going to try to order all this stuff ASAP because I am almost afraid to drive my truck anymore.

So I guess I just need a part number or link or something to get that lower shaft

I would think it is Borgesons. But PSC sells it with the kit, so they gotta have access to them. Call PSC, they were awesome when i dealt with them. Just dont tell them that you bought the gearbox cheaper somewhere else---that might piss them off. Choose your wording carefully.

Little update. Called Psc. They are really really nice to deal with. That kit they sell is an oem box. The shaft they sell with it is borgeson. It's because with the new box they went from a splined input to the clamp style. They sell the bottom of that shaft for $115. Then he told me they have an adapter shaft for pre 08.5's (smaller splined input shaft) to the new oem box. It's the full shaft for $315. That's cheaper than buying the two pieces and putting them together. And borgeson makes them for Psc. So I bought the full shaft since I wanted that anyways. So my 04 will bolt up now with the 2010 box. It has it's own part number and when I get it I'll post it up. I hope all this helps someone else as I've been wanting to do all this so I'm glad I found it all at once.

hahah.. well.. I ordered my new control arms ($399) from 8lug along with the new box, pitman arm, and tie rod adapter thingy for the old steering from wermopar (580 shipped) and the PSC/Borgeson shaft for $330 shipped. sooo around $1200 or so. I actually got new bilsten 5100's already on this past weekend ($300) plus the steering stabilizer 5100($90) and the thuren track bar i ordered too should be coming as well ($340)

Grand total.. I know I've spend a hair over $2000 for all this stuff and a few extras ( got some front and rear mag tec diff covers)

But when its all said and done, if my truck drives like its supposed to and doesn't wander all over, I'll be externally happy as it is the ONE thing i HATE about my truck. Last thing before my truck is "done" would be some carli ball joints but those won't be coming for another year or 2. That and fix the little rust spot i have. By then it will be paid off and I will have the extra money to do what I want with it.

"Externally happy"! I hadn't heard that one before. Interesting choice of words.

Hope the steering works out for you.

Externally happy is a Dodge thing. As for the exact definition:
Externally happy: An emotion that Dodge owners experience, meaning: happy on the outside, that they think it is fixed. Yet still reserved on the inside, because they really know, deep down inside, that something else is gonna need fixin soon.
