We proud to announce that we now offer Red-Head replacement steering gear boxes for the second generation heavy duty Dodge Rams! These steering boxes are built in Washington state and offer unmatched steering control and longevity. This gearbox allows you to retain the factory steering shaft, as well as the stock pitman arm. This is a major advantage especially those with lifted trucks with dropped pitman arms, you will not have to change your pitman arm.
This box is the 4 turn lock-to-lock box, it is best for diesel vehicles with stock and larger sized tires.
If you have a diesel with stock tires, you CAN use the 3 turn "quick ratio" box, but please understand "quick ratio" boxes will not last as long in a diesel application vs the 4 turn box.
What makes a Red-Head steering gear better than your average parts store reman box?
Our re-manufacturing process includes:
- Machining out the housings and installing needle bearings
- Flame-spraying or replacing the shafts as needed
- Installing new control valves on some applications
- Custom fitting each worm & piston assembly with special ordered, precise over-sized ball bearings.
We also install every sector shaft on a lathe to check to be sure it is straight and true & polish the sealing surface to a higher polish than new
This gearbox allows you to retain the factory steering shaft, as well as the stock pitman arm. This is a major advantage especially those with lifted trucks with dropped pitman arms, you will not have to change your pitman arm.
