Question steering problems

i just put a new steering box on because i figured it would fix my steering problem and it was leaking but i am still having the same problem i have a tone of play in my steering wheel prob about 5 inches or so and it is not my steering shaft because everything there is tight and when i move the wheel back and forth in the "play zone" nothing turns comming out of my steering box so i dont have a clue what it is or if i can adjust anything so could any one help me out

I put one in a 02 2500, Its not ball joints, they dont cause loose steering, it also could be a defective gear box, check your tie rods and get it aligned

Try to tighten the adjustment bolt on top of the box. I just replaced mine as well, and even though the box was new, it was still loose.

yea i had the same prob the 4 bolts on top of the gearbox was loose and ther is a adjustment on top of the box and it helps but my steering is still loose and if you have any lift was so ever it makes it worse and it also makes ur steering wheel turn more to the right the bigger the lift.
