Thanks for all the input, FYI I did do the rag joint, steering box, and steering pump not too long ago due to steering fluid being BLACK and burnt smelling, also loud squealing from the pump. The new gearbox sucks - it had way too much play right away (it's a BBB reman unit). None of these upgrades made much of a difference IMO, I think it's all the ball joints that are shot. Like I said when it is jacked up you can still hardly turn the wheel, and with the truck started is not much better (almost like no power steering).
I think I'll go with mostly Moog parts but may try to save the upper control arms by changing ball joints & bushings and hittin it with some black paint.
