HD steering box

I retired my stock steering box for a heavy duty one from T4BBs (Kevin). It doesn't have the manufacturer's name on it so I don't know who makes it. Kevin uses this box for the large rails he builds (2500 lbs)
The box looks exactly like the stock box only beefier. It is a little longer but fits just fine.I pulled the box apart, and every thing fits like a glove. The up and down slop is controlled by 4 ball bearings that are spring loaded and run in grooves in the top plate. I believe Bearfoot mentioned that he was going to put a UHMW shim under the top plate to try and do the same thing. I think that would be a good idea to try and make the stock box a little tighter.
I haven't had any time to ride since I put it on but there was a big difference in the way it steered in my parking lot. Almost like adding a steering quickner. I'll post more info after the hurricanes and tropical storms move through.

Re: HD steering box

Quick note.
When I took the old box off, the holes in the plate were oblong. The bolts were on there pretty tight but must of had a bit of play. Check the mounting bolts! Also one of the half inch bolts was bent and the small plate with two holes connecting the half inch bolts was stretched.

I pulled the top off the stock box. Removed the block. Machined 3 pockets into the block. Machined 3 delrin plugs to fit the pockets. each plug was slightly taller than the block. Nice & tight, no slop now.

Re: HD steering box

The key to these steering boxes, is GREASE, GREASE, GREASE !!! Thay are not sealed and the sand and grit goes right in the front. A rubber boot, over the entire box would really make them last.
