Yes it will, your wheel alignment is out to blazes, you will wear your tyres out really fast and your steering will be vague. very dangerous. very hard to straighten the drag link safely because once straightened will bend easier next time. My recommendation is replace the drag link and have the wheel alignment done by a professional

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

Is there an adjustment on the steering gear box for play in the steering wheel?


Welcome to the wonderful world or old-school steering systems. What you mention is very common in older GM vehicles. The gearbox gets sloppy, and with the additional issue of the drag link and idler arm, you eventually get what we old-timers call "mystery steering". It reminds you of the old movies where they have a person in the car driving with the scenery projected behind them and they are constantly moving the wheel left and right. There may be something that is really needing repair, but more than likely, you are spoiled by later model vehicles with power rack-and -pinion steering. These are very tight compared to the older vehicles and when you change from one to the other, the difference is more noticeable than ever.,

Loose steering wheel shaft on 97 EXP. when I hit a bump i get the death wobble I checked everything else and and so did pep boys, tire discounters and bob somerell Tires,all is good. Has anyone had this...


Hello, Sir is your 1997 Ford Expedition a 4X4? It sounds like the drag line and it's ball joints.
There is a bent heavy steel arm at the end of steering box. On the end of this pitman arm is the drag link and the drag link is hook to each front hub with a ball joint on each end and the pitman arm. This way when the steering wheel is turning both wheels in the front will follow each other.
If the ball joint are wore out on the drag link this will cause the front wheels to wobble.

Need to get the Ford Exp off the ground where the front wheels are free of a load. Now, just grab one of the front wheels and move it back and forth. There a good possiblity it rattle like marble in a car.
Also, check the upper and lower control arms that attached to each front hub. There are hugh ball joint in each control arm, upper and lower on each of the Ford Exp. Two per side four all together.
I hope this help you. GB...stewbison

99 GMC JIMMY. STEERING LOCKS DOWN SOMETIMES AFTER 1/4 TURN OF STEERING WHEEL. CHANGED PS PUMP, CHANGED STEERING GEAR BOX, CHANGED DRAG LINK, CHANGED BALL JOINTS, NO SIGN OF PHYSICAL BINDING WHAT IS...


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.

Steering wheel turns more than the wheels turn. fight to keep straight


with engine off, have someone turn the steering wheel back and forth. Check under the hood along the steering shaft for loose u-joints. check the steering box, check joints at either end of drag link(from steering box down to passenter wheel) and tie rod ends. do this with engine off so wheels dont turn. and by the way, jeeps have sloppy steering boxes from the factory, so don't expect excellent, tight steering when you're done. good luck

Drag link adjustmnet


Your desctiption sounds like your settings are incorrect. I reccomend that an alignment shop adjust for you.

A common mistake on this type of project is steering box centerning. to test, from straight ahead, stop.., turn wheel from dead center to the stop, and measure exactly how many turns. From dead center, it must be the same both ways.

Steering boxes have an exact center setting, and get looser (so to speak) as turned right or left off of that spot. SOOO, if set to one side or the other, steering gets tighter when turning in one direction as compared to the other.

Get an alignment shop to set this up, it is common problem.

Esp/bas light on, steering wheel off center after off roading


If your steering wheel is off center, this can cause the problem. Luckily this is very easy to fix -- you can do so even if you have little to no experience working on your vehicle.
1. Park the vehicle with the wheels facing straight ahead (drift forward until you are moving in a straight line). Don't worry about the steering wheel position. 2. Locate the steering drag link -- the diagonal rod coming from the bottom of the steering arm to the top of the passenger side steering knuckle (on the axle near the tire) 3. Loosen the two bolts on the rotating adjustment collar on this link. I believe these are 13mm. 4. Rotate the collar one way about two or three turns, check the steering wheel to ensure that the "Jeep" logo is perfectly horizontal. If it's not, continue rotating the collar (or move it in the opposite direction) until the wheel is centered. 5. Tighten down the nuts on the drag link adjuster. 6. Take her for a test drive and let me know how it worked!
