How To Straighten Out Dodge Truck Steering
“Chrysler has been screwing up steering since the first Dodge Ram,” says Jeff Grantmeyer at Borgeson, manufacturer of replacement steering components. “They have a great power train, but the rest of the vehicle is lacking in several areas. One that always needs addressing is steering.”
  One of the problems with Dodge steering is a coupler that shows signs of wear in as little as 4,000 miles, depending on use. This creates play in the steering. The problem is even more noticeable if the truck is used for plowing, towing or with oversized tires.
  Borgeson claims their steering shaft assembly with precision bearing U-joints and a telescopic shaft will outperform OEM parts. It is priced from $198 to $320, depending on model.
  The company also offers heavy duty power steering boxes for 2003 to 2008 Dodge Ram trucks. The Borgeson Dodge Box has the largest piston diameter for the most available power assist, quicker ratio for less turns lock-to-lock, and a modern variable valve that provides stable driving and easier parking and maneuvering. The Dodge Box is priced at $695.
  The third steering component for Dodge trucks offered by Borgeson is the pump. Their Hi-Flow power steering pump is a direct replacement for pumps on the 1994 to 2002 Dodge Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks with the Cummins Turbo Diesel motor. The pump has output pressure/flow calibrated to 1450 to 1550 psi and 3.5 gpm. It also features a reservoir with 2 returns to support Hydro-Boost or Vacuum brake applications. The pump is priced at $195. OEM style power steering lines are also available.
