Post Durango Steering Box SwapOn TJ

I had a few questions about the swap for my TJ. I went and bled the power steering a few times already and it seems like it was easier to turn the wheels before with my old leaky gearbox. Another the pitman arm was very hard to remove out the steering box end. And I cranked the hell out if it to tighten it and not sure if its just me but the gap seems a bit much between the pitman arm and the gearbox. Anyone have any feedback?

That shaft is tapered so when the nut is tightened and torqued to spec it stays in place for the life of the gearbox. When removing them most make a relief cut with an angle grinder. They almost never come off with just puller.
