steering box leak/ time for an upgrade

after i installed my 4" rc lift my steering box started leaking fluid and it looks like my pitman arm has a lot of tension on it. i just installed 33's and im ready to just upgrade to a better steering system at least box and pitman arm if people recommend i need both. can anyone help me decide what a good set up for my 97 tj sport with 2" body 4" suspension and 33's would be. i would rather spend a little more just to get the better product and avoid replacing it in the future. thanks for the help in advance!

Lotta jeepers use the 98-99 dodge Durango v8 4wd non snowplow edition power steering gearbox

A direct bolt on swap that has larger fluid ports which adds more power for turning larger tires

Some opt to buy a new pitman arm being the old one can be a pain to remove

Maybe a drop pitman arm would help
