Are you looking to replace your 4WD Dodge Ram's OEM steering box with one that lasts longer and provides better input? It's hard to beat our remanufactured heavy-duty steering box that features a number of upgrades.

Your truck's original steering box was engineered in the 1960s, called a Series 700, and was made by Delphi. The replacement unit is also made by Delphi, but it was designed in the 2000s and it is called a Series 680.

So what makes the Delphi Series 680 a better mousetrap?

  • Modern internal valving provides a variable assist feel to the driver's steering input. The further you turn the wheel the greater the assist. The benefits to you: the power assist is limited in the centered position to help the vehicle track straight on the highway.
  • The Heavy Duty replacement steering box is a 16:1 ratio. The benefit to you: effectively 3.5 turns from lock-to-lock compared to 4.5 turns.
  • Larger internal piston diameter (80mm) for greater power assist
  • Larger diameter bearings support the output/Pitman shaft
If you use a Borgeson Replacement Steering Shaft (part numbers 000950 or 000945), the steering box installation is a simple bolt-in-place operation. The Delphi box and shaft are a full-circle spline design.

This steering box will only work on trucks with 4WD. This will also work on Ram 1500 4WD trucks and Gas model 2500/3500 4WD model trucks.

NOTE: To use this steering box with your truck's existing steering shaft (a female, D-shaped spline design), the input shaft (male, O-shaped) will have to be filed-down with a grinding wheel.

NOTE:This steering box will work on Cab/Chassis trucks.

NOTE:This steering box is larger than the original box and will not always work with other aftermarket accessories without modification. For example, steering box braces.

NOTE: Frame spacers included.



Rebuilt exclusively for Geno's Garage by a leading steering gear manufacturer.

Buy the Box and stop reading comments

Night and day difference, changed my box 4 times with O'Rielys boxes. Every single time there was a problem. Last one had 4" of play and all of them were super hard to turn. Tried the dual stabliizer shocks, steering box brace, and no luck. Changed this one, took all the rest of the BS off, (Took 6 hours with cleanup), added the borgeson shaft, and seriously there was a night and day difference. Don't read anymore just bite the box, and buy it. You won't be let down.

Only had this unit in place for a couple days now but it's definitely a noticeable upgrade... Right out of the box I was impressed. Sloppy response is gone. I actually had to learn how my Y2K Cummins tracks on the pavement again as if it was new. Buy it!!!! You'll never regret this purchase. Be patient with the pitman arm.... It's a bear. Use the right tools. JS

output shaft is leaking after only 50k miles, 8years. Doesn't seem right
Owner Response:David, we are very sorry you had problems with this part. As you note, you've had it since 2014. Although uncommon, a leaking seal can happen on any gear box. Give us a call if you would like some assistance locating a replacement sector seal. Ask for Scott Sinkinson. Thank you for your business, David.

Be aware for lifted trucks

I've bought many through my shop for leveled trucks with no issue, bought another for my sons 2500 diesel with 5in lift and 35 12.50 18 and had 1 last 1 year and a month and next 1 5months before spewing fluid out seal on bottom when turning right only on both gearboxes, tech line says it needs the psc box instead! Loved box on every other leveled truck but with only 5in lift I would have thought this "HEAVY DUTY" BOX could take it, torn on rating this and now looking at spending $700 more for something they should note in the add about lifted trucks! Just be aware on anything past leveled you might have same issue as me, now I'll be in boxes fo$1100+ now:(
Owner Response:Although the Borgeson box is a more heavy duty box than the OEM box, a 5 inch lift, and 35 inch or larger tires puts an enormous strain on any gear box, especially with a heavy Cummins motor.

HUGE difference!!

Incredible improvement! I couldn't be happier with this purchase. Installed Borgeson shaft also and changed all the hoses. Night and day difference.

Worth twice the money!

This is my 3rd steering box and the only one that I can recommend. First Rock Auto then Redhead. When I phoned customer support, the guy that answered my call had all my answers!!! Took us 4-5 hours install with Borgesdon shaft . Steers 95% last ke my 2020 Ram . I am ecstatic. 2001 Ram 2500 4WD 5.9 Not lifted.

Owner Response:Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. I have looked at your account and see that we are getting this taken care of. We apologize for the troubles.

Still not 100% even after an alignment. Everything under the front end is brand new. Should've bought a redhead!
Owner Response:Sometimes gearboxes need a small over center adjustment after being installed to find the true worm gear to sector gear sweet spot. Please contact us and we will walk you through this process.
