Converting the 06 to 09 Steering

3038 Views 15 Replies 13 Participants Last post by  mibgron
I have heard that converting to the 2009 steering is an easy and great upgrade. I have though about purchasing the new 2009 steering from the dealer. Only thing I don'[t know what is different and what I should buy. All suggestions are appreciated. Thank you

I have a 2006 dodge 2500 6in rough country lift.

from a 07.5-08 to 09 the only differnce that I know of for 100% sure is the pitman arm, my truck had to sit for a week after I got the lift because the pitman arm was different. When I bought my 07.5 right when they first came out the 06, 5.9 kit fit it fine.

I need to do some more research. Right now i have a lot of bump steer. Also the tie rod that atteched to the pitman arm is wore out. So I figure maybe I would do this upgrade.

Here is what i learned: Basically in 09 Dodge changed the steering to a better design. This should be the part # you need to order from dodge and it bolts right in.

69039930AA Cost about $87 bucks.


This system will give you better tire wear, more stability, and is more heavy duty.

And Hay, can you ask for anything more? :thumbsup:

Find a dealer going out of business with that part is stock. It will be the cheapest price ever.
I saw on the news that the dealers have 3 weeks to sell all the vehicles and parts that they have in stock.
A $34,000 300 is priced at $22,000.

Just looked at another thread that is saying there may be a recall on the 09 style steering setup. Looks way more beefy though. The bump steer problem on mine was a shot steering box. Put in the new box and it drives like new again. Don't pay more than $200 for a remanufactured one, I even found one for as cheap as $135.

Will the 09 steering setup work in my 04? I've replaced everything, steering box, pitman, drag link, tie rod and all ends, ball joints, hubs, and trac bar and I still have problems. I was looking at that Thuren kit but maybe the 09 oem would be better. what do you guys think?Thuren Fabrication- Crossover steering kits
