    I second the nomination!
    Steer and Gear
    I have had very good dealings with them
    The current steering gear in my charger is the "Modern Feel"
    and I am very happy with it

      I just checked the coupler “pot”, I feel VERY little play, maybe 5 thou. Barely perceptible . Can hear the shoes in the pot move. Likely needs more grease. I’ll change it out for new when I do the box.

      If they are not loose then just clean it and put some wheel bearing grease in there.
      The original parts are good quality.
      You can get a new seal for the cover but the cover is very tricky to get swaged back on and have it stay.
      There is a wire retaining clip you can find to help keep the cover on.
      You might want to locate and purchase one of those.

        I'm happy with my Steer n' Gear box in my 69. They are usually at Carlisle, where I picked up mine.

          Thanks ! Wish I could wait for Carlisle or the Nationals in Columbus, but I need to fix it this winter. Shipping should be $30-40 one way.

          I am curious as to what you decided to do? I am also debating between the Lares 11033 box and a re-man from Steer and Gear.

          I put in a Borgeson box and related parts from Bergman Autocraft. He is a vendor listed on here. His customer service is excellent. The steering is very similar to a late model. NO play at all. I found out my Moog idler arm from 20 years ago has slop ! Got to change it to a roller bearing from firm feel or Bergman. The Bergman kit is more $, but I feel worth it !!!
