i did a search, but didn't find what i was looking for. ok, here goes. i replaced my steering gearbox in march and replaced it a couple of months before that. when i replaced it in march, i noticed that there was some play in the input shaft that the steering shaft bolts to. my front end is acting up again and the shop said that the alignment was ok. should i try replacing the gear box again or try a different shop for an alignment? second, i have dual steering stabilizers. would those cause the steering to act funky on a stock height bronco with 31" tires? i got them from jeff's bronco graveyard and they are the ones that you have to drill a hole in each of your shock tower mounts. if i was to remove them, would the shock tower mount be ok, or would i be looking at replaceing them. i can't remember how big of a hole i had to drill, i want to say 5/8", but i can't remember. thanks and sorry if this was covered before. jeremiah

Have you tried messing with the adjustment screw on the gear box? You can tighten it 1/4 turn and take up most of that slack. Also, be sure the steering shaft is O.K., no wear in the rag joint, etc. Good luck!

i'll get the ball joints and tie rods checked out saturday. i don't think it's the steering shaft rag joints cause i installed a borgeson steering shaft somewhere between december 2002 and march 2003, can't remember for sure. i'll check to see if the nut that holds the pitman arm is loose when i change the oil on wednesday. thanks everyone, i'll let you know what i find out. oh yeah, i replaced all of the tie rods in august 2002 and i got them from autozone. would they go bad in only a year? just curious. if they did, atleast i don't have to drop any money on new ones, lifetime warranty. maybe i should have gotten moog tie rods instead, had to go cheap cause of funding.
