Sheppard steering box

Anyone know of a sheppard steering gear box repair that will work. Last year I took my 2011 Knight to Monaco to check for steering play. They told me to have it alignment. Did that with no help. Back to Monaco and they replaced the steering box. Little help. Then I added new shocks. No help. Went to Henderson and they went through it and added a Safe T Plus. Little help. They also told me I needed the steering box replaced. Again? They also said they could get mine re made from Portland, but they didn't have the correct one on hand.

Red Head Steering gear has a good name and claim they are able to get all of the slack out but the repair will be around $500, call at 800-808-1148.
Shepard claims that 1 inch to 1 1/2 inch play is normal and that is way to much, I have 1 1/4 play in my Shepard and may have it repaired but on hold as I wait on Van and others to see what they come up with a TRW replacement bolt on, you might want to monitor the thread.
Wandering, sway bars, alignment, ride height, oh my!!

A new thread is on the way next week. Please read the last ten pages of the above thread link. That will catch you up on what is about to happen this week. I feel your pain, just give me a week to bolt on some parts and start an information thread and you might just be surprised. There are a few ways to help your...AkA...Sheppard problem, from better to best in the new thread. I will try and link to it from a few different threads.

Thanks

Craig can you tell us at this time if the "TRW" fix will be a direct bolt on and play? deSanford

deSanford,

I am trying not to put the cart before the horse but let just say in our case it MIGHT be, parts in my paws on Monday, easier than I originally thought. In a few days I will post ALL I have found out in my many hours of phone calls, parts yard rummaging and tech talks....promise
