Default Rebuild kit for 78 F-150 steering box ???

Does anyone have any experience rebuilding a steering box?

I want to get a quality rebuild kit and need to know where to spend my $$$

I have a 1978 F-150 4x4 box but it has 4x2 worm gear to reverse the steering. It is on my 71 Bronco.

I thought about buying one rebuilt and swapping the worm gear before I return the core and then I watched how to rebuild one on YouTube. It just did not cover replacing the bearings and setting the gear lash so I would have to do more research if I were to do it myself. I want it done right.

The issue is that it is sloppy and I do not know what items to look for wear on other than bearings and wear surfaces.
