Steering Recomendation

So I'm at wits end with my TJs steering. I replaced the OEM box with an autozone reman unit (huge mistake) the quality was definitely sub-par and within a year it blew a seal and and rust proofed the front end of my jeep with its power steering fluid goodness. I then figured I made a mistake buying a low quality reman unit and bought a PSC box. Its been 2 years since that box was installed and now has a big dead spot in the center and sector shaft play (very disappointing). Which is making my jeep wander like crazy. The PSC box only has a 2 year warranty so they probably wont do diddly.

Anyone have any recommendations. I dont need an insane box, its only pushing 33s, but at this point im open to suggestions.

Any changes to steering parts other than the box and/or steering geometry?

The front end contains:
1. New unit bearings,
2. New U Joints
3. New Ball Joints
4. V8 Grand Steering
5. 2" BDS Lift
6. JKS Trackbar
7. JKS Quick Discos

However drag link is parallel to trackbar, caster is as 6*, 1/8" toe in, so nothing stands out to me

I bought a replacement unit from a local jeep dealer and its been working great for almost 2 years now, which includes a numbwr off trips offroad and a lot of city driving and tight parking that puts strain on a box, I'd call psc up and have a good talk with them and push to see if they'll do anything about it

I would contact PSC they might do something for you. Can't hurt to ask.
