How about replacing the shaft, and ADJUSTING the two items on the steering gear?

Wild Guess: Correctly adjusting an OEM steering box gets you better results than a production-line "rebuilt" box; costs nothing but your time and enough PS fluid to flush the old stuff out.
The steering box has a leak, so I figured on just replacing it. Had to read this thread a couple of times then bounce back and forth to see what parts Caman96 was referring to. I was thinking about rebuilding the front end anyways (got nothing else to do) I like the direction he went and I already have ordered some of the parts as I followed along. Video was great help. Replacing the entire shaft? I'll look into it.

Just a heads up, RockAuto still has NOS USA manufactured Timken SP550300 and SP550301(left and right) front wheel hub assemblies. About $41.00 each/Closeout Sale! When these are gone, you’ll be hard pressed to find NOS USA wheel hubs. You’ll spend almost 3x that on cheap China junk.
Edit: Actually, with RockAuto 5% off, they’re only $38.95 apiece! :drool:
