Try shift rod or column shift rod. It will be a dealer part or salvage yard part. The parts guys at the dealer can probably pull up a diagram and name for your part.

Will a 86 motor swap into a 93 f150

The motor might with some modifications, a big difference in years and systems, though both are OBD-1. Not even sure the '86 is injected, or is it carbureted? Better off looking for an engine nearer to your '93. There could be multiple issues with sensors and their wiring between the two. Don't use shortcuts, scope it all out beforehand, or you could wind up with a half finished '93 with a forlorn "pond jumper for sale" in your driveway. good luck, Craig.

Had a shimmy at 20 to 25 mph

The tie rod connects the steering gear to the struts. If the bushing is worn out at he gear, it is replaceable without replacing the whole tie rod.

1999 f-150 squeak in suppension

Check the ball joints and steering linkage for wore out parts. Jack the truck up and move the tire back and forth to see if it wobbles and watch the upper and lower ball joints. You can do the same with the steering linkage by moving tie rod ends up and down to see if they pop up. Everything should be tight with little or no play at all.

1990 truck f150 remove steering play

On the top of the steering gear box you will see a threaded rod with a slot in it. On this threaded rod there will be a hex nut that you will need to loosen. Back the nut off so you can turn the rod in gently until the play is gone. Do not over tighten or damage will occur. You will need to look in a spec book to get the correct inch pounds setting for the steering gear lash. This is a simple process. Good luck
