Steering problem
1993 Other Dodge Models V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 97000 miles

I have a 93 ramcharger, the shaft from the column to the steering box is wore out where it goes into the steering box. The new part is very expensive - wondering if there is a rebuild kit?

Do you
have the same problem?

Yes, you should be able to purchase the parts that are worn. Have you tried a dealer?

The last I heard, the housing was no longer available from the dealer, but the internal shoes, spring, and pin were. It's the big pin that wears out, but if the housing is rusty inside, it contributes to the problem of sloppy steering. If the pin does not stay in the shaft tightly, the hole is worn out and the shaft must be replaced. That's very expensive, but also very uncommon.

There is also a rebuild kit available over the internet, but I've never looked for it.
