You have to replace that whole system. anytime your steering components are hit that hard as to damage them your steering box takes the impact as well so its not only agood idea to do this but its a humungus saftey concern

700 ranger will turn right fine but left not so much . Is their an easy fix ?


No, apart from checking the Power Steering Fluid level. If it isn't that, you need to get it fixed professionally. Just imagine losing steering or a steering arm joint on the highway doing 70MPH.

Hard steering


it is probably in your steering rack and pinion, if you have rack on your truack otherwise it is in the steering box, you would be surprised to know how many time the main shaft gets twisted in an accident then causes steering problems

You've bent either the rim or the steering arms. You can't "straighten" the bent parts. Take it to a repair shop for part replacement. And soon before you have a steering failure and an accident.

When i drive, it feels like i have little control while the steering wheel feels loose. I also have to turn my steering wheel about 15degrees to the left to go straight. Any ideas?


Sounds as if you have bent some control arms Or even broken the steering gear rack both front wheels must be off the ground to ***** the situation The best way to recognize a bent part if you are not familiar with it is to compare to the opposite side

There are many other things that can be bent, and it may not be visible to the naked eye. Hitting a curb at 50 mph is a BIG impact, the mounting points for the suspension components may be bent as well. This isn't a job for a mechanic, bring the car to a GOOD, reputable body shop. They have the equipment and expertise to diagnose exactly what is damaged/bent.

I have a 1993 ford econoline turning to the left is great but turning to the right is harder what could be the problem


If vehicle has been in and accident, have a four wheel alignment performed. A good tech will find any problems with some suspension parts being bent or shifted. Could be a Power steering rack issue. Could be a problem with the wheel bearings in one of the wheels.

CORSA B STEERING FAULT ( VAUXHAL/OPEl)


you could have a bent suspension arm or a tracking problem i would recomend you get these things checked first
if thats all fine i would go to your local brakers yard and get an electric power steering pump and fit it yourself
they are located on the steering column at the top and can be seen if you pull off the trim panel on the right
they are only held in by a couple of bolts

Most probable cause in this order is Idler arm, bent suspension parts, worn Steering gear box.
Was undercarriage or wheels subject to hit, large potholes?
Has suspension been lubed recently.
