Can anyone suggest high end steering components I should get for a steering rebuild. My steering is feeling quite sloppy, and I regularly get an alignment (~6 months). My power steering box is leaking (is this common on 1999 Tahoes?), and I was considering an AGR pump and gear box, www.agrperformance.com. Obviously, I will do a new pitman and idler arm at the same time. Should I replace tie rods and tie rod ends as well (moog maybe?). Any other suggestions from a knowledgeable source will be appreciated.
I do not have a lift currently, and most likely will not be putting one on. I am looking to run as big of a tire/rim combo on the stock height. Also, I will be doing new shocks and will probably replace some bushings with daystar, prothane, or energy susp. Any suggestion on bushing kits that anyone has done? thanks everyone!

As far as suspension components I would suggest Spicer/Raybestos Professional Grade Parts, UBJ's, LBJ's, Pitman & Idler Arms and Inner & Outer Tie Rods. You may also need an Idler pivot assembly. Also, go with Polyurethane UCA and LCA bushings as well. If you plan on larger tires and you're going to go off road I would think about getting some aftermarket HD Tie Rods. The stock ones are OK for On Road use with a little bit of a larger tire, but if you go off road they are kind of inadequate. Those changes should tighten up your front end substantially. Rock Auto has the best prices I've seen on the Spicer/Raybestos parts. Hope this helps
