Nort really, You have rack and pinion gear, Need to check tie rods, inner and outter, wheel bearings and any linkage in the front end first.

What year is your vehicle? If it is older and is equipped with a gearbox instead of rack and pinion you need to take the slack out of the gearbox. There is an adjustment nut on top of the gearbox. You will need a ratchet with a long extension and a socket, I think its 17mm. You will see the nut with a slotted post in the middle. Loosen the nut then use a long screwdriver to tighten the screw about 1/4 of an inch. Dont tighten it too much you can cause the steering to bind if you do and ruin your gearbox. Just tighten it enough to take the salck out,. I had to do this on my 95 bronco.

With all that work done,you should also get a front end alignment as all those components combined could greatly affect the steering.Any front end suspension work as well as new tires should have an alignment done after.If you get it done and still have problems simply reply back to this post and I will get an auto link to read your comment and we can go from there.Good luck!
