Noise from front offside when turning the steering wheel right

this sounds like you may have a bad cv joint on the right side that will need replacing. replace the half shaft not just the outer joint.

Hi, i have a ford ranger 1992 4x4. i want to replace the 4 ball joint. i take off everything. i just wonder and can i take off both solid axle shaft so i can take off the ball joint

The steering knuckle has to be removed so you can use a ball-joint press to remove and install the ball joints. The drive axles must be removed so there will be enough room to get the steering knuckle to drop down far enough so it can be removed.

Could be steering shaft on bottom of column that connects column to gearbox. Rag joint or u-joints on shaft are dry or seized. Try spraying rubber rag joint & u-joints on steering shaft with a good penetrating oil like PB Blaster. Work steering wheel all the way to left,spray, then turn all the way to right & spray some more.

Power steering not working, check power steering fluid and it is full

If you mean it is very hard to turn steering wheel & it wont or barely returns after steering to left or right. Look at bottom of steering column shaft under the hood. It is very common for steering shaft u-joints to become dried & seized up. Spray up both u-joints & rubber rag joint with a good penetrating oil like " PB Blaster" it is magnetic & will lubricate seized u-joints. Be sure to turn all the way left & spray & all the way right & spray. Let sit for a bit then turn wheel all the way left & all the way right. If it gets better then be sure to lubricate every so often. If it doesn't get better you will need to change the steering shaft.

My steering is really stiff fluid is full no leaks

Had same trouble with my 2005 F-150. There are 2 universal joints on the steering column shaft, 1 in the center of the shaft and the second down by the steering box. Sprayed rust check on these joints over 5 days and they eventually freed up and then covered them with grease. She steers perfect now and I did that last fall.Saved 700 dollars at the dealer.
