SOURCE: steering column

Inside the engine compartment, you will see the steering column coming through the firewall. Should be a box that the column goes into. Have somebody move the steering wheel (i.e. lift up on it and pull down on it) while you watch to see exactly where the movement is. Once you know this, you can show it to the guy at the local parts store and he will be able to tell you what you need.

SOURCE: Steering column is becoming loose on 1988 Buick Lesabre

There are 3 bolts inside that have backed out, this is a tough job. You have to have special tools to complete this job. You have to pull the pins on the side after disassembling to access the bolts.

SOURCE: steering wheel loose

Open the hood and make sure that the column has not come loose from the rack and pinion. To find this follow the column out of the firewall down to the rack and pinion and insure the shaft is on it. Also check and make sure that is did not come loose under the dash.

Loose / wandering steering. Ball joints are new. Wheel bearings seem tight.

That's a classic sign of a loose steering gear box on that generation Grand Cherokee. Have your jeep checked out for play, in the gearbox.

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!

Steering loose on 1994 chevy 4x4

check the idler arm and pitman arms
a quik and dirty way to check for play in the front end
is to have an assistant rock the steering wheel back and forth while feel an all the joints in the steering gear for play.
there will likely be more than one loose joint.

2004 chevy trailblazer seems like the steering is loose. what might cause that?

Do you mean the steering wheel seems loose or the truck itself is loose, meaning you turn it and the reaction seems "delayed".

If the wheel itself is loose there are bearings inthe shaft that wear (pretty common) or you may have a front end compnent wearing out if the reaction is delayed.
