RedHead sells a great box, I've ran many on dodges in the past and its night in day compared to the poor stock design dodge boxes

Does upgrading the steering box lighten up the steering at all?

Well... to be honest... not really...

It's does have that nice new smooth Cadillac feel though when you get that new box in with new P/S fluid... It doesn't really lighten it up..

Great company though... I would buy from again...
