Question about 1985 Toyota Land Cruiser
The caster is probably out of adjustment on the front axle. If the leaf springs are lifted, sagged out, or if the shackles are changed, the caster can be changed enough to make the car undriveable. Have an aligment shop check caster and add shims if necessary.

This may not be the steering box at all. It could be some other suspension component such as tie rod ends, drag link, pitman arm ect. Also be sure to check the rag joint on the steering shaft/column as waer in these can cause the ducking and diving you describe.Consult a repair manual for proper adjustment of your steering box. For most steering boxes I have had to adjust you loosen the jamnut and tighten the adjustment screw down until it hits the stop then back off half to three quarters and tighten the jamnut.
