Front End Question
I have been noticing in the past week or two that my front end has been acting weird. When coming out of a tight corner at an intersection, sometimes it seems that the truck steering doesn't want to straighten out. THen this morning, I noticed that it would decide to pull to the right, then if I move a tad bit over to catch the cross slope of the other lane, it would start to pull to the left.
I just jacked up the front end and pushed on the tires back and forth - truck not running. The entire steering linkage moved together about a quarter to half inch and then would stop. It seemed the week point was what I am guessing is the steering box. Should I be able to "twist" the wheels and make the steering linkage move when both wheels are off the ground. Is my steering box shot? Or can I adjust it a bit?
