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

    • 2012 Kubota 400/idles good backfires when given gas

      Troubleshooting Kubota 400.  it  is tough to start, I have to pump the gas pedal. After it starts it will idle, but bogs down and backfires when I  give it gas. I've replaced the fuel pump and it did not fix the problem. Any other suggestions that would not require replacing throttle body and ECU ?

    • 2016 Joyner T2 1100cc 4 wheel drive

      I have a 2016 Joyner T2 that is giving me problems engaging in and out of 4 wheel drive.  I have read some older posts that address this issue on some older models, but can't get any of the older pics to open for a good explanation.   I have not taken anything apart at this point.  Hoping some mechanically savvy Joyner owners can help me out. Thanks

    • Can you get a good used side by side for $4,500

      My family moved from Illinois to Leadville Colorado about 3 months ago.  Leadville has a lot of trails to ride and some fun off road stuff  that i would love to start getting into with my boys. I currently have a 04 HD FXD Superglide that i might sell or trade for a UTV. My question is are there any UTV that are good solid used side by side that i could find for about $4500 or $5000? If not I will keep saving for something. If so what brand and year should i be looking for? Thank you for your help!!   Thank you Chris

    • Need advice on 4x4 Side by Sides

      Looking to buy at a USED Side by Side.  Problem is I don't know that much about them but here is what I know. I'm not a speed racer, it's low and slow for me but I need to get up and down some major hills.  We have used Yamaha Rhino's (450, 660 & 700) with good success on the ranch where we are hunting.  Kia. Mules need help getting up but The Honda Pioneer also needed help going up and are scary as hell coming down and dangerous in the mud coming down.  You are dead if you blow any of the corners.  The electric wouldn't go up the easy road, so the big hills are out of the question.  The Quads all do fine going up & down but I'm 70 yrs old and tired of muscling a Quad around. I think what I need is a 4x4 with a high/low range shifter & locker (like the Yamaha Rhino has).  The Honda is so nice to drive but dangerous coming down hill with no low range, do the newer ones have it?  Trying to find info but hard to wade through it all.  So what am I looking for (besides a Rhino). Lots of brands out there that I know nothing about: reliability?  prices?  HP, gearing, after market parts available, etc?  A few I never heard of before? Thanks for any/all help/advise/thoughts/etc   GTB
