Re: cj steering shaft replacement
In 77K miles I have adjusted the '7s steering box three times. It's not difficult, although it should be removed from the Jeep. The only special tool you need to do it right is beam-type inch-pound torque wrench. In all liklihood, adjusting it is all you need to do.
If you adjust it, put it back on and it still isn't right, you're not out much, and taking it out the second time will be a snap.
