Question about 1990 Ford F150

90 F150 steering problem

I have a 90 Ford F150 with a 5.0. I was in a hit and run a few months ago and got hit in the front passenger side, hit mostly in the upper part, wheel never was damaged. Since then I got it put back together and the steering was off, you could turn about 2 turns to the left and about 4 to the right (normal). The steering wheel was not in the right spot anymore. I took it to sears to get it aligned, they checked it out and said there wasn't any damage. But they aligned it and they told me that I would have to pull the steering wheel and reset the center for the turn ratio so that it was the right amount both ways, then bring it in again to align. I am assuming I have to drop it off the gearing box, but how do I know when it's right? Or am I way off on this or is Sears feeding me a line. Thank you very much,

    I fixed it, replaced the heater core, fender, radiator support, radiator, bumper and the grill.

    The only thing sears did is a front end alignment. There is no insurance claim and I did the work myself and looking to fix it myself.

My 1994 F150 pick up had right side power steering go out about a month ago, and now the left side has gone out. Is this a pump problem? Or gearbox problem? (Fluid level is great)


If your power steering went out one direction at a time, it most certainly has to be the steering gearbox causing the problem. All the control valving is in the box. The pump just pumps constantly and the box either bypasses or directs pressure and flow.

Had a steering box installed in my 2000 f150 truck and now it weaves from side to side a little, will a front end alignment correct this problem.


it shouldnt affect the alignment to replace a gear box,since the pitman arm can only go on 1 way only,if you put on a used box,then how much travel left to right does it have sitting still without the tires turning ?The steering wheel should only move a few inches before the tires actually move.Check the idler arm which is located towards the passenger side and connects the drag link to the frame,its about a $75.00 -$100.00 part for a heavy duty front end
