Steering Box Replacement

So I've been searching for reviews and coming up short. '98 Grand Cherokee Laredo, all 4 ball joints replaced, checked all tie rods and 2 ends are replaced. I've adjusted the steering box and it still wanders a lot and is all over the road.

Looking into possibly thinking its the steering box. main question is what brands for boxes are suggested. I know I get what I pay for, but the budget is tight on this.
Also, with everything I have replaced, i know there is a TON of slop in the box, it's binding and still has about 3 ish inches each way on the wheel, Other than a new box, are there any suggestions of other things to check?

Thanks

I've thought about that, but haven't found too much detail on it. I've seen the saginaw rebuild thread but how am I sure that is the same box, and where to I get a rebuild kit? RockAuto lists a Lars rebuild box for $60 plus shipping and tax and core, I dont think that it's a bad price I just wanna know it's a decent quality before buying
