yes inverted t is much better
no toe in changes when suspension moves up or down
tie rod is much stronger
and its a factory system 98 3500 hd steering
bolts in but dosnt have place for steering stabilizer
havent dealt with that yet

Good to know. Thanks. And. I don't like the stabilizer placement anyway gone through 3 in the last year. Bashing in rocks Where did you buy the parts ? $ ? Just so I know and see if I get better deal or getting ripped off. I can get pretty good deals at Lordco but if there is a better place I'm game

seen pretty good sucess with that steering box sector shaft/pitman arm brace.

the one that uses the pillow block, seem to help out if you run it hard or have over sized boots.

Have seen 3 different trucks with that brace break the sector shaft off at the threads 2 had stock size tires
Think the way to do it is brace the box not the sector shaft
The one with big tires broke 2 boxes
Still runing mine minus stabilizer
No death wobble at all

There is also a steering BOX upgrade.

My ps box recently started leaking so I priced out the borgeson box and shaft from lorcdo and it was somewhere around $1400, is there any other company that makes an upgraded box?
