Re: how do you adjust the GM 4x4 truck steerin box?

you back the nut off while holding the screw some are a allen
head or a flat head and then you screw the bolt down untill
the play in the box is gone,but do not take all the play out at one time or you will have to learn to drive the truck all over again,have someone else screw in the bolt while you turn the
juggle the wheel back and forth to check the play in the wheel

I did mine about a year ago...
jack up the front so the wheels are off the ground and center the stering wheel. Loosen the nut, then tighten the allen screw till its tight, then back off 1/4-1/2 a turn, then tighten nut back. Shouldn't need anyone else to help, takes about 5 minutes

Re: how do you adjust the GM 4x4 truck steerin bo

maybe i will do it monday, since i have no school, so i will jack it up, off the ground in front, and do it. i just hope it dosnt snow or rain monday, but even if it does you'd probly see me out in the driveway adjust'n it anyway, thats just how much i care about my truck, afterall right now my truck is my girlfriend, since i have no human girlfriend, might sound strange but that is just how much i care about my truck.
