The gap in between the top of the arm and the box is fine. Just replace the seal on the bottom if the box checks out. The nut on the pitman arm is torqued to about 190ft lbs.

Have someone turn the wheel back and forth and see if the shaft that comes out of the box (where the pitman arm is) is solid and does not have play... if it does just replace the whole unit.

Okay i will do that and check it out. If it does look solid I will just use a seal kit, and i can replace the seal without removing the steering box? Or how do i install the seal. Is there a link somewhere on here?

I just want a battle axe like virmagicus except michelob light. Dude lives in gulf breeze, so he's working in 100 percent humidity with a heat index above 95. I feel his pain,lol.

Curious to know what you ended up doing, replace steering box or changed seals?
I have the exact same issue with mine, PS drains in 20 min.
