On my 87 Samurai, the steering is pretty loose. I have a hybrid SPOA with 2" shackles and a home made Z bar.
There is about 4" of play in the steering wheel! all the ball joints are tight. Once the castle nut on the Z bar (the one wich goes to the pitman arm) was threaded out more than half way, and it was being drivin on the highway! Dam lucky nothing happened :-)
Anton you can adjust the steering gear lash by backing off the jamb nut on the steering box and turn the center screw clockwise until you feel a little resistence and then from there back it off about a quarter turn. that should help, i'll explain more at the meeting. See you later little buddy!
