Yes, you'll need to loosen the nut on top of the steering box and turn the screw, to tighten, then tighten back up the nut.

In the center of the gear box there is an adjustment screw to tighten or loosen the steering. It is usually and Allen key bolt/screw with a locking nut on it. Loosen the nut and adjust the center screw/bolt. I believe adjusting the screw clockwise is to tighten but I am not positive.

The steering wheel is has too much play in it.


Steering wheel play can be caused by many parts including tie rods, idler arms, pitman arms. drag links, the gear box itself or the shaft and connectors between the steering wheel and the gear box. I would recommend inspecting all of these things and repair or replace as necessary.

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.

Excessive play after steering gear box and intermdt shaft replace


It is very important to take this back and have it looked at by the shop that did the repair. The steering box would come pre-adjusted. I'm afraid they may have left something loose...it happens. Try phoning them, they may even want to tow it or send someone out to check it. Driving with the steering box coming unbolted from the frame would be tricky.

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.

If it is been shot and it moans ,there is a possibility that the problem is in adjusting the steering wheel of the car to free play.There fore the owner of the car should be able to adjust steering wheel free play.Prepare the tools and equipment for adjusting steering wheel free play . So that when the steering free play is adjusted , no parts is, no parts are lost or broken.This is what should be done ,first you have to locate steering system assembly,locate the gear box ,check the steering wheel free play,adjust steering wheel free play,observe safety rules .But if you don't have time to do the job then you have to go to a car shop mechanic let the mechanic to do the job

87 chevy nova loose steering


Sound like it needs some steering parts, you need to jack it up and check the state of the steering components, if you have that much play in the steering wheel you could be flirting with disaster if you don't deal with it soon. If you are unsure of what to check , get it into the shop.
otherwise you need to check the steering box, tie rod ends, idler and pitman arms, ball joints etc.

Hope this is of some help.

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.
