Re: 2000 F-250 7.3 - Steering box bolts broke
I haven't heard of this one. However, it shouldn't necessarily matter that you have a 4wd. The steering is nearly identical to 2wd models. Have you felt any abnormal resistance in the steering when you turn the wheel? Does the box and the frame where it attaches to look badly rusted? Are the bolt ends corroded badly? My thought: I would bet they didn't use the right strength bolts when installing the steering box.
