98 Dakota Steering Gear

Hey guys,

My steering gear is going out, and from reading on the forums and talking to a knowledgable friend, I am going to get a steering gear from a 98 Dakota. I found it at a junk yard, from a 4x4 dakota with snow plow package.

Why I am posting is, I am wondering if there is anything I should look for to make sure I am getting a good part. Is there any red flags that I should be weary of? They're asking $100 so it seems to be a good deal but I don't know if it's just going to last a month then I'll be in the same position again. Thank you guys! Been a big help so far and I appreciate it!!

$100 would be expensive where I'm from. I would check the seals, and I would also buy one without the pitman arm on it.

$100 seems high for a junk yard part they go for $50 around here
