The steering box has an adjustment screw or bolt which is kept from turning by a lock nut. Loosen the lock nut and turn the screw or bolt
so as to reduce the play in your steering. The adjusting bolt is generally
located on top of the steering box.

How to adjust the play in the steering


If the play is in the steering box and not in the ball joints, tie rod ends etc., you will need to replace the steering box, there are not any field adjustments and play is a sign of wear.

Extreme play in steering wheel. Experts say the front end parts are fine and they tightened the steering box. but still alot.


First check the 'rag joint" in the steering shaft. If this is good repair, The steering box assembly at the frame should be replaced. although there is an adjustment known as the (over center high point steering adjustment) the box will show as adjusted until there is a load placed on the steering assembly. Excess play in the steering of dodge trucks is a very common issue. The only true way I have ever solved this issue is to replace the steering box. ( always make sure all front end parts are in good service and within normal wear prior to replacing the steering box). ****Remember there is always personal safety at risk. NEVER leave any steering issue unresolved******

Truck steering how do i adjust steering box


you should really never have to adjust unless you were rebuilding it, if theres alot of play in the steering then check the front end components, if every thing is tight then replace the gearbox, this is common on these trucks the gearbox wears,

Hi, How do you adjust float in steering wheel is it done at steering box or is there another trick Thanks Chris


WHat do you mean by "float in steering wheel"? Do you mean play at the steering wheel? If so, there probably are no adjustments on that car. Some older cars used steering boxes which could be adjusted, but Every Hyundai I've ever seen used rack and pinion steering which is usually not adjustable. You should check for play in the whole system. Have someone rock the steering wheel back and forth and look at the steering components to see if there is any play in them. If it is rack and pinion, hold your hand on the boots that are on either side while the wheel is being rocked to check for play in the inner tie rod ends. Replace any parts with play in them.

Steering is loose


look at the steering knuckles on the tierod ends for play. they are probably worn. have your steering box sector shaft checked for runout. sometimes they have an adjustment on them. Bushing kits can be had from napa or any reputable off road shop.
