I'm fixing up my ol' 85 ram 4x4 and have a couple of problems. The steering has alot of play and it has gotten worse and worse over the past 4-5 years. My dad said we need to find a steering box for it, but is this the problem? Also how much would one cost and where would i look for one at? He wants me to call local salvage yards to find a good used one.

Try rebuilding the steering coupler first. That is a common problem with dodge trucks. It's an easy and cheap fix, about $10.

I got mine from oreillys for $183 with tax. The core charge was $150 above that. Check that coupler first.

Depending on how much money you want to spend, a Borgeson steering shaft works wonder.
