To take full advantage of our truck’s new, tightened suspension, we opted for a rebuilt variable-ratio steering box and a new rag joint from AGR. Every component has to play its part, and if one of them is sloppy, the whole package is going to feel loose. The rag joint, which connects the steering box to the steering column, is very seldom changed and if worn-out can really make the suspension unresponsive. AGR also has new intermediate shafts available with universal joints at both ends that eliminate the rag joint and make the steering ultraresponsive. The downside is this solid connection also transmits all the road feel and bumps through the column.
