Hmmm... and for only $23,995.00 I can get a new CNC Milling Machine on
Amazon.com - what a deal ...
Let's try pitman arms and box adjustments before I writ that check !
Se what I mean about VV as a valuable resource ?!?!?!?

Check the pitman arm bushing first.

It depends on your idea of expensive. Brand new boxes are available for
~500, which seems to me a reasonable price for what you're getting. I
suppose you could also learn to program a CNC machine to make your own worm
and nut (the unique parts to the quick steer box) if it's unpalatable to
just go and buy one ;-)
