'31 Chevy steering

I have a '31 Chevy 5w coupe that's had all the modern upgrades (350-350, 4w disc brakes, new wiring/guages, etc.) except the steering. It is bone stock and wanders a bit. There is a fair bit of play in the steering box but the remainder of the front end is pretty tight.
I like the look of the solid front axle and was told replacing the steering box and (possibly the column) would be just the ticket to more refined steering.
Does anyone have experience upgrading the steering box on a '31 Chevy? I'd like to hear the details if someone out there has done this upgrade.

As a 1932 Ford owner and a Moderator here ...
I would like to WELCOME you here ...

I am not familiar with the stock steering box in a 1932 Chevrolet.
Is it cross steer or otherwise. A lot of rodders use a Vega cross steering setup ... with good results. A cross steer unit mounts on the left frame rail and goes across to the right side wheel. Some others mount on the left frame rail and go to the left wheel.

I have a Uni-Steer rack in my new 32 Ford project ...

This is a cross steer set up .


I believe it would adapt to a 32 Chevrolet fairly easy ...

Thanks for the tip on the unisteer; I checked out their web site and they do not make a unit specifically for Chevy so I'll need to contact them.
Anybody else out their with a '31 Chevy?
