I tried this with my 96 2500 but no matter how far I turned it either way the steering didn't feel any different, no play anywhere except for in the steering box, I did follow the directions in the original post, I had the box replaced under a year ago, any suggestions? Thanks

Yea. There is a piece of crap bearing under the brake booster in the steering collum.
Rock solid is the outfit that makes a solid plastic replace ment fix.
And, when you have that shaft from the box to the colom off, see how much play is in that sliding joint.
Center punch the crap out of the slider side until it is better.
Made a bunch of difference in my 01.
