Question about 1995 Ford F150 Styleside Regular Cab
You could have one of two things wrong with the steering. in between the steering wheel and the steering box there is a rubber grommet that bolt in between the two that wears out and you can buy the part at Ford. To see if this is the problem have someone turn the steering wheel from left to right with engine not running at the same time follow the steering shaft until you see the disk with two bolts in it as the steering wheel is being rocked back and forth if you see the upper section moving and the bottom section not moving right away then you have found the problem. I think it's called a steering wheel damper and you don't have to remove the steering wheel apart to replace it unbolt it and you can slide the new one in. If thats not the problem then you want to check the thrust bearing run out in the steering gear box. to do this you will have to find the Nut on the box that has a Allen head wrench loosen the nut a half turn then tighten the Allen head bolt all the way in not a lot of pressure just get it to bottom out with 3 pounds of tork to the screw then back the screw out 1/2 turn then hold it in place while tightening the lock nut. This should get rid of the problem. If this does not fix it then next wiggle the steering wheel shaft back and forth and watch the pitman arm coming out of the steering box notice if it has any free play, if it does you have a problem with the steering box if it moves at the same time then if it still has the same problem you may have a linkage problem so after you have done the above replacements and or adjustments then contact me and I will help you trouble shoot your issue. I need to know if it has hydrostatic power steering if it does there could be another problem with the spool valve. Let me know and thanks for using fix-ya.
