I have replaced my steering box, pump, and hoses on my 1994 dodge ram 2500, used all napa reman parts. the steering did not have any return, and there was play still in the steering. so i loosened the allan bolt, there is still a lot of play in the steering. I got underneath the truck and turned the shaft with my hand and i can turn the shaft is about a quarter to a third of a turn and the wheels do not move. the track bar was replaced, and some other misc steering bushings, the front end was aligned and the mechanic said everything was tight underneath. Any suggestions, should i go with an aftermarket unit or replace mine with another napa reman, thanks in advance

I have a simaliar deal, my 99 has fairly new front end parts and is very tight but I can move the steering shaft atleast 1/8 of a turn with no movement on the out put side, I am thinking I need a new gear box or should I try to adjudt it first?
