Hey guys, good morning...I am going to fix my steering wander on my 04...so far in the shop waiting I have XRF Tie Rods( all 4), new sleeves a BD Steering Stabilizer and the Lukes Links Poly Trac Bar Bushings are already installed. Was thinking about the maxx sway bar links as well. I know there are many other ways to go but this seemed to fit the budget best and I was able to get the XRF stuff cheap and local..I dont really need anything too heavy duty just to run straight down the road with a mainly stock style chassis. I already have new ball joints(XRF) and new axle u Joints installed. any other suggestions? I have to keep it affordable as my wife wonders why I have to spend $ on upgrading such an expensive truck:confused013:

I checked into PSC when swapping my box, they did not stock any box on the shelf so I'd have to wait to get it rebuilt by them. went with red head steering gear up in Washington, talked with them about their rebuild process and was happy with what they do. Left the napa box ($100 cheeper) sitting in the garage until the red head box got here and it was installed (easy and there is a DIY writeup on it).

Very happy with it...

edit: http://redheadsteeringgears.com/ had it on the shelf ready to ship.

The sway bar links wont help a lot, some. But I would go with links that don't have the rubber bushings.

I think it depends a lot where you live when you start using the heim joints on everything. Many (or all ?) of the heim joints won't last very long if you live in a salty corrosive enviroment ... so I've been warned from actual users of the product. Something to look into anyway. I too was looking at the Maxx Links for this very reason.
