Re: steering wheel not straight
Well I think his question is answered so I will now hijack this thread and ask a similar question. My steering wheel is more or less aligned with the tires, but somehow or another it is not aligned with the steering box. I'm guessing I did this when I replaced the steering shaft, but I was playing with the steering after I replaced all the linkage and noticed I can turn the wheel to the right until the right tire hits the radius arm, but when i turn left the box hits the stop before the tire gets within several inches of the left radius arm.
If the box isn't at its centered position when the tires are straight ahead, will that cause a pull in the steering wheel?
I have a very bad pull to the left that I thought the new linkage and home alignment would fix, but nope it's definitely still there. I'm going to recenter the wheel to the box then align the wheels accordingly, but would like to know if this can't cause a pull so that I won't be disappointed when it doesn't fix the problem and I realize the pull is due to the crappy engineering of a crappy lift made for a crappy front axle designed by crappy engineers [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
