New power steering box made all the difference. Way more control. Did run into some issues with the main stores and the power steering box they sell. The picture shows what it should look like but not what you actually get, they must have redesigned the top so there were clearance issues.

Left is what the OEM ford box looks like and what their stock pic looks like but the right is what you get.



I ended up getting a rebuilt ford box, which was probably for the best in the long run.

Yeah it was kind of sketchy because it went from nothing for a quarter turn on the steering wheel to everything the next 10th of a turn. This makes it way more enjoyable to cruise, I'm not so tense anymore lol.

Also went ahead and put that pinion guard on while I was working on it.

My dad's fj40 is sketchy to drive in the fact that Toyota designed the front end with way too many ball joints, and they are worn out so it likes to just veer off in whatever direction it wants

Yeah I've been eyeballing the pros since they came out and finally just pulled the trigger on them. They remind me of a less aggressive pitbull rocker which I'm already biased to.
