SLOP-FREE STEERING

WE INSTALL A RED-HEAD STEERING GEAR ON OUR ’00 F-250
PHOTOS BY ADAM BLATTENBERG AND COURTESY OF RED-HEAD STEERING GEARS

After living with our ’00 F-250’s sloppy steering performance for years, we’ve grown tired of wandering side to side in our own lane, fighting the wheel on long trips and dreading going anywhere with a trailer in tow.

It’s long been time to replace our aging Ford’s factory steering gearbox, and there is one name that offers the ultimate upgrade. That name is Red-Head Steering Gears. The Auburn, Washington, company’s products are known for taking multiple inches of play out of loose steering wheels, outperforming brand-new OEM steering gearboxes and, frankly, making end users enjoy driving their trucks again. Time and time again, truck owners who opt for a Red-Head steering gear never recommend anything else.

Upon reaching out to the folks at Red-Head, we were supplied with a steering gear from one of its largest distributors, Diesel Power Products, and promptly slapped it on. We immediately realized Red-Head’s self-promoted slogan of providing “steering gear quality beyond expectation” is no joke: The play in the steering is completely gone, steering inputs are precise and effortless, and the truck handles better than it did the day it left Louisville.

But why does the truck drive so much better now? What exactly does Red-Head do inside its gearboxes that makes them so much better than the competition? We’ll explain in the pages that follow, along with walking you through the installation on our Super Duty.
