’94-’02 Dodge Ram Power Steering Gear Box Replacement – Step by Step!

’94-’02 Dodge Ram Power Steering Gear Box Replacement – Step by Step!

In this video I show you how to replace your steering box on a ’94-’02 Dodge Ram! The pickup in the video is a 1998 Dodge Ram 2500 5.9L 12 Valve Cummins, but this should work on many different versions of the Ram – Including gas and diesel models 1500, 2500, 3500!

The steering box I used is an upgraded unit from Red Head that I bought from Diesel Power Products, and it has great reviews.

Andrew Hansen says:

Hi Jake. Good video. I just installed a RedHead steering box and used your video as a prep. Just in case others follow your video, I have a few different torque specs shown in my repair manual. Intermediate steering shaft pinch bolts…36 ft/lbs. Three attachment bolts of steering box to frame….140 ft/lbs. Sector shaft nut…..185 ft/lbs. Four sway bar/bushing attachment bolts……40 ft/lbs. All specs for 1999, 2nd generation 2500 4×4 diesel. RedHead steering components are excellent, with excellent customer service to boot. Thanks for the video. A.

How many quarts of ATF +4 fluid does it take to fill? [1995 dodge 3500 V10]

Dewy Wildon says:

How's it steering now? Would be good to add a video of the result

Justin Clark says:

Got a 98 1500 and will be doing this replacement soon, good video was wondering if you've replaced your shocks and if you had any recommendations on the different brands

Khar' Shan says:

The crown jewel for the 12v

Jeremy Schneider says:

why no sway bar? I also dont see a steering stabilizer that truck must have been rough to drive! glad to see another 98 12v still alive like mine looking forward to more videos!
