Re: Steering play

See if there's play in any of the steering coupling, steering box, pitman arm, tie-rod ends or drag link. Have someone turn the wheel back and forth with the engine off and look at each point for play.

Re: Steering play

There is an adjustment, but I have never seen it adjusted. Usually a replacement of the box or suspension parts. You could be due for a new steering box or your front suspension has some play in it. Naturally, any steering box will have some play in it.

Re: Steering play

This is for Stangs, but the steering box is pretty much the same throughout for quite a few years.
