I need to replace my steering box. Is the steering box on our trucks the same part as the standard F150? Ford said they are discontinued but they provided a part number. Local parts house crossed referenced it but I want to be sure I am getting the correct part. Thank you.

the steering box I replaced in my 01 n/a 5.4 last year was SLIGHTLY different than the one that came out.. it required a little effing around to get the o-e steering line connected .. but yeah .. "same" difference
it was no big deal .. just expect to maybe run into it ..
-drives the same as always too

be sure to check the idler arm on the other side too
I replaced mine the summer before the steering box was done

I think it flopping around might have killed the steering box early

felt like I needed a balljoint as I turned right into driveway cutouts and passed the curb line
