Was just wondering how you can tell that your power steering pump is bad or going bad? Other than it leaking fluid or is that it! Was wondering if a weak pump(if poss.) could cause play in the steering.
Loose steering really is the "TTB special". On my 85 I always had loose and vague steering until one day I decided to rebuild the whole front end. (it needed radius arm bushings and axle pivot bushings anyway).
All new bushings, new coils, shocks, all new steering linkage, balljoints, wheel bearings, and rag joint. After that it turned like a brand new truck (well, except for the 2.5 lane turning radius) but you know what I mean :goodfinge
It makes such a difference that it's now the first thing I do when I buy a TTB or TIB truck. It costs about $600 to do your self, but it's worth every nickel.
