Honestly, If you've never attempted this sort of thing before, just buy a new box. I've seen people try to rebuild big truck steering gears with less than favorable results. There is just way too much liability involved for me to even consider it. Besides, prices on new boxes from Dodge, not remans, were pretty reasonable last I checked.

I have rebuilt many, I worked in a reman shop during my school days doing alternators, starters, steering boxes, etc. That place made their own hard parts and got the rest from China. It is not that hard to do, just a recirculating ball setup, the problem is finding the bushings, the seals are available but why replace seals for them just to go bad again because the bushings are worn out.

I got a reseal kit from NAPA for my AGR (POS) box. I'd look and see. Usually there is no need to overhaul. Just reseal and adjust for wear.
The sector shaft (pitman) usually is a bushing at the top, and a roller bearing at the bottom. the teeth on the sector shaft are tapered, so the freeplay can be adjusted from the top. Worm gear preload is a different matter, and might be better left alone if you need to ask.
But seals and adjustment are easy.
