Steering box play

Recommended Posts

I think my steering box is toast? I can wiggle the front wheels back and forth a good 1/4" (maybe more) side to side. The wheels are locked together pretty good, meaning when I wiggle one wheel the other wheel also moves about the same amount. The steering column does not move at all.

I'm going through my front end to find that ridiculously load clunking noise (i.e. something is going to break loud)

I take it back... when wiggling one wheel the other does not wiggle. Both of them wiggle independently and the steering wheel has about 2"-3" play.

Silverbullet

We use to do them but found out that under cover on top of ball joint.Thear is a cup that has to be drilled big enought to let the grease inter the ball joint.If you just drill out the cover the grease cant get in to the ball joint it just fills up the outter cover and never goes inside.If you have the time you can take cover by grinding the spot welds off then drile a 1/8 hole in to cup and then just screw cover back on and put zerk fitting in and then you can grease them.Time consuming

Thanks Frankie

Sorry
