While you are in the engine bay swap a steering shaft from a 95-98 Grand Cherokee. It uses u joints and takes a bunch of slop out of the steering.

engine and trans are in there. engine is bolted in with lsx innovations adapter plates to use the stock clamshells. trans is just ratchet strapped up until i build a crossmember. im not payin that crazy money that gforce or anybody else wants for one, its like $30 worth of steel. i stuck a truck hotside on it with my billiet 80mm just to see if it would be close to workin. its about 3" too high so i guess ill start workin on the hotside for this car after i get the trans crossmember built

They are a lot smaller in diameter, especially at the steering box end.
