Steering wander/slides left and right
94 7.3L dana 50
I scheduled an appointment for alignment in Saturday for my steering/wandering all over the road/sliding left and right problem.
Truck steering off center then at highway speeds center at 11'oclock shifts to 1'oclock. After I fight it back it immediately slides back over to 11'oclock as center on the steering wheel.
Last night I jacked up truck on driver side. To see if I could get play up and down to see if ball joints were the issue
. I have massive/loose play up and down with no effort. Ball joints right? HOWEVER, while doing this and looking behind the tire at knuckle and ball joints there is no movement!!!! They look tight.
Seems movement is the wheel/rotor/hub!! I'm positive. 2 questions:
1. Wouldn't I be able to see movement behind the tire on knuckle an ball joints if the were bad? I see no bad seals and theses things feel tight as heck.
2. I took out the hub during rebuild and did not torque the spindle nuts and don't think I possibly put the bearing back in to proper torque specs. Could this be the issue? Seems to be right now. Any advice?
Which hub or bearing am I replacing.
