Re: Me: And what are you doing with the steering l
MSF, they did align it after they put the new tie rod on. I have the alignment readout with the specs on it, apparently they did it. I'm not sure how bad my ball joints are anyway. We replaced them, MOOG of course, when we installed the lift kit. I can post the #s if you're curious thugh. I know I don't fully understand how to read them....just never looked at them [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] Up here in WA, I don't have all the tools to work on my truck, so, I'm deferring more truck work to the shops. Of course, I nit-pick them, they're working on it, but hey, it's still my truck and I know more about it than they do.
Jason, I also inquired about adjusting the steering box with the nut, but the guy said the problem with that was that "it causes the steering to bind". ??? hmmm??? I'm sure he just wanted me to plant another $700 into their shop. I'd try to tighten it up with the nut first though. I'm sure if you got overambitious about turning the nut you'd run into problems.
