Think its broke

So no mechanical skills. But pretty sure this isn't right. If not what is it and how hard to fix?

That's your steering box. The pitman arm might be a pita to remove. But it's a unbolt, put new one on and bleed your steering.

You could also replace the seal.

Just make sure the sector shaft doesnt have a groove in where the seal rides, if your just replacing the seal.

So replaced the box. And in the process of doing so jacked up the bolt on the tie rod end. Now having a heck of a time getting that out or even finding directions on how too.

mine currently leaks as well...its due to my 35's, though. I'll replace with a durango box soon enough.
