re: "What is the preferred lubricant for a box that has not shown any signs of leakage?"
80W-90 gear oil has worked well for me for many years/miles.

Thanks for the good suggestions. After reading Joseph's I did a quick check on the shocks and found I could tighten the upper shock mounts about one flat (I have Putske's Bilstein shocks mounted) but to be on the safe side I will give the entire front end a good nut and bolt before ruling anything out.
I am running about 27 psi on the Michelin XAS's and I will also check toe as per Dave Porter's suggestion.
In the meantime it has been quite a while since I have checked the fluid level in the steering box and I ran out of time to check it today as I must move the cold air hose in order to get to it. What is the preferred lubricant for a box that has not shown any signs of leakage?
