    It's really bad. My wife won't even drive it. Only 40 for a durango box from a dude in town, so it's a cheap iinvestment to know everything has been replaced. Worst case scenario, spend another dm 20-30 and totally rebuild it .The only other thing i can think of is drop brackets for the control arms

    Yeah, never hurts to know that everything is brand new and should be good... It does certainly suck to replaced part after part trying to chase an issue... But at least once the issue is taken care of... you know your stuff is good to go for a while...

    Just picked up a box from a '99 Durango. It's dirty as all hell but I'll clean it up. I put a vice grip on the output shaft and it had about 3.25 turns lock to lock, not too bad. The spacer I ordered should be in on Saturday then it's swap day. I may even do some videos for youtube. While I'm down there I may as well check my steering ujoints.

    If I do, it's not going to be a how-to, just a before and after comparison.

    My axle side track bar bolt hole is about 1/8" bigger than the bolt. I'm using the stock bolt and flag nut which I hear is a m9 shank but m10 thread. This could be the cause if my steering clunk. From what I've read, getting an actual m10 bolt with m10 shank will fix this up. I don't have access to a welder so tge washer trick isn't doable.

    You might also check into standard size bolts. The trick is to get a bolt that fills all the hole, both flange and bushing

    Well, after looking on the rc site, one of those "extra" bolts I pushed aside was a 10mm. I'll have to see what I did with that.

    Hope your install went smoothly... Only issue I had with my installation of the Durango box was I did the IRO spacer, and needed to add some washers between the spacer and the gearbox to allow for the larger gearbox to fit in the spacer... I just made a quick run to the hardware store less than a block away and picked up a few washers to use as spacers, and haven't had any issues out of it since I finished the install...
