I've a '76 K-5, stock, with 32-11.5's. I have about 4" of play in the steering and it "wanders" from goove to groove on the highway. I am planning on lifting it 4" and running 35's somewhere around january'ish, but with winter comming up I am a bit concerned. When the engine is off, just turning the steering wheel back and forth, there doesn't seem to be any wheel movement, just the 3-4" of play in the steering wheel. The ball joings seem solid as well, can't produce any noticeable movement when vehicle is jacked up. Perhaps I have a bad box? I have checked for cracks in the frame, but none are apparent. If not the box, do I just need to replace steering arm, tie-rods, etc? Any idea's or tips are much appreciated!!!
