SOURCE: steering whel vibration isuzu bighorn 3.1d 1992 auto

Some SUV's have a steering damper. This is like a telescopic shock absorber that is attached to the steering idler arm at one end and the chassis at the other. If the bighorn has one this may be the cause of the problem. It took me months to find a severe steering vibration problem on a Range Rover. I replaced the damper, which was quite inexpensive, and the problem went away.

SOURCE: Steering gear box knock

Lube your intermediate steering shaft. It is very easy. Remove the bolt in the shaft that you can see from under the hood and push the steering shaft up toward the firewall. Where the shaft goes into itself place some grease and work it back and forth. This will last quite a while, but is easy to do again if need be. Replace the bolt and you should be go to go. The dealer will charge you $150 to do the same job. The knock goes away as soon as you test it out.

SOURCE: steering box adjustment, how

Before you do this procedure, check the rubber or universal joint connector between steering column and the steering gear. If it's worn it will cause looseness and there's your problem. Otherwise, there is a threaded screw with a lock nut on the top of steering gear. Clean threads first. Put a large flat screwdriver on the screw and loosen the lock nut. Back it off several turns. Now, screw the screw down into the gear box. Not too tight though. Your actually jamming the gears back together. Back it off a 1/2 turn or so and run it back in lightly. Hold the screwdriver and tighten the lock nut. This is usually effective.

Steering play

How do I remove the slack in the steering on a 1995 toyota 4runner


In rack and pinion steering, they are long and tube like to look at, the wear that takes place that causes play is the rack ends. You have to
take the boots off and unscrew the rack end, always fit new units .
With recirculating ball steering boxes, you adjust the end play on the sctor shaft on top of the box with the wheels up off the ground, make sure that there are no tight spots when you spin the steering wheel from lock to lock as you adjust the play out.

I have 97 chinok motorhome on e350 chasis. have replaced all 4ball joints, new shocks,front end inspected,new steering stabilizer,new tires but still hve a wander in steering. would any one have any ideas?...


You said that you had the front end inspected so I assume that all 4 tie rod ends are good and the front end was aligned. Changing parts without re-alignment can create a wandering condition.If that is the case then your problem could be play in the steering box, which should have some adjustment. You should also check the bushings in your control arms. They are rubber and will deteriorate over time, creating excessive play in the front end. Hope this helps.

Truck tends to have a lot of slop in the steering, must continually move the steering wheel back a forth (seesawing) to maintain the vehicle in it's lane.


depending on the year, there is an adjustment on the steering gearbox to take the slack out of it. kind of job which needs a trained person with proper tools. you may find that if the vehicle is so old that the steering gearbox is shot, there could be a lot of slop in the tie rod ends and ball joints. Also used to be a steering arm "mirror" unit called an idler, i think, on rear wheel drive vehicles, which sits on the opposite side of the car and keeps the tie rod connector parallel with the line defined by the front axles. If you have one and it is bad could cause your problem.

I have a 97 K1500 with some loose steering issues. I have replaced everything that has anything to do with steering except steering gear and powerstearing pump and it all helped a lot but it still seems to...


Have the front end alignment checked as it may the cause of wandering. With the truck parked and the steering centered, but the engine running, wiggle the steering wheel back and forth while watching the left front wheel. It should respond to the steering action without any observable slack. Have someone watch both front wheels while doing this and see if there is slack between the two wheels. Any slack here is indicative of slop in the cross-wheel coupling. Hope this helps!

Excessive play in steering wheel. What could be


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.

97 RAM 1500 4X4 replaced steering box and some


2 inches @ the steering wheel? i do not recommend tampering with the screw on the gearbox. that is for adjusting the sector shaft, usually only adjusted on high mileage gearboxes. since most of your driving is straight the gearbox worm gear wears out in that position, by adjusting it, it tightens up the gap in the gears the problem comes in when turning because it can be too tight on the ends of the shaft possibly binding up in your gearbox.and no matter what happens next it probably wont be good. try checking the couplings in the steering shaft. with the vehicle off, steering unlocked, have someone move the steering wheel left and right making sure not to move the tires, your looking to see play at all joints, couplings, or pivots. where you see one piece moving and the other not.

1/6 turn of slack in steering


On top of the steering gearbox, is a threaded stud that has a slot in the head of it, and a nut on that stud.

Make sure the wheels are straight. Use a large flat tip screwdriver for that stud, take an end wrench, and loosen the nut.

Screw the stud down 1/8 to 1/4 turn. Tighten the nut. Check the slack. If the steering is too tight, back it off. Too loose, tighten a little more.
Drive the vehicle a few blocks, check the steering out. Come back, and do adjustment some more if necessary.

It's a fine line between too tight, and removing slack. DO NOT drive it being too tight. Readjust until it's right.
If your vehicle is an '83 Jeep, it's 26 years old. The steering box may be worn out.
