front steering rebuild

Well, this past weekend I rebuilt the front end (steering) of my truck. Put on all new tie rod ends, drag link, ball joints. It was getting pretty road happy. It was really hard to control at highway speeds. It drives like new truck now. It didn't take long either. The tie rods and the drag link were really easy. The ball joints took a little more time. I guess I can check that off the "To Do" list for the truck.

Re: front steering rebuild

On my 88 blazer the steering wheel has a lot of play. After closer inspection I noticed that the play is in the connection of the drag link to steering arm. How are these two connected together and how hard is it to take apart. I figure I am going to get either a dropped drag link or a raised steering arm. But what part would probably be the worn out one? The dropped drag link is around $120 and the raised steering arm is about $50. Id like to just get the steering arm but it would be stupid to replace it if that not even the problem. So what do you think?
