Re: Steering wheel not coming back to center
Thanks for the reply Norm!
I did call Pep Boys and explained what was going on. They inturn called their tech line. They said either the box was defective or the pitman arm was installed wrong. I told the guy the pitman arm was keyed and I didn't think there was any way of istalling it wrong. Needless to say they did tell me to bring it in and they would replace it.
The next one I got (which I had to drive 10 miles to get b/c none of the other 3 local Pep Boys had any steering boxes) had damaged threads on the shaft. I didn't find this out of course, until I got everything apart and went to install the pitman arm nut. So I had to return that one too!
I ended up going to Advance Auto. Not only was their part cheaper, but it looked nicer, and was packaged better! This unit worked!
