Re: strange steering
Unless someone ripped it off, a thin black plastic shield covers the rag joint. It slips over the hose fittings of the steering box. I was rummaging thru my junkpile the other day and I found a nice rag joint from an '88 - it will fit any F-Series or Bronco from '80-'97. If you need one, let me know.
But I think it's probably the steering box that needs adjustment. I had the same problem (how is it that we all encounter the same stuff at about the same time?) a few weeks ago, and that solved it. I'm still researching it though - the Haynes directions are a little confusing.
