Thats not common. Are you sure it isn't a tie-rod end or a ball-joint. Ford are real common for having squeaks when you turn the wheel from the ball-joints.

You need to remove & rebuild the steering box

How to fix a rattle in my steering on my 1999 gmc jimmy. i have a rattle in my steering in my 1999 gmc jimmy


Check the steering intermediate shaft connection to the steering gear box, its slip shaft and the connection to the stering collumn. if those are ok, its probably slop in the steering gear box. Some of that can be adjusted out on the gear box by your mechanic. You will see either a flat head cut or hex head inset with a lock nut on the top of the gear box. Loosening hte lock nut and tightening the bolt to factory torque setting then releasing it the appropriate specified degress will reset the gear box back to factory settings. Beware if you set this wrong you will cause your steering to bind when turning. Therefore only let a qualified mechanic do this for you.

Have an 83 cj 7, just replaced the power steering hoses. Thought I had fixed the problem, now the back of the steering gear box is leaking as well as the steering coupling boot is ripped. Don't really...


You can get the parts to rebuild your steering gear, but in all honesty for the trouble and time you will have invested in rebuilding the thing. If it were me (and beleave me when I say there was a time I wanted to do it all myself. up to and including manufacturing new parts from a chunk of steel) I'd go with a rebuilt steering gear. You can try to replace the seal but in the long run some thing made it give out in the first place.

I have been told that my 98 Dodge truck which has 56,000 miles needs a new steering gear box. Steering wheel has about 2 to 3 inches of slack. Have put on a track bar and a tie rod for 700 bucks and still...


The gear boxes are just cheaply designed and made, its a very very common problem with these Dodge's. Even the new ones experience whats called the "death wobble", where the truck will all of a sudden veer left or right. The most common things ive replaced on these trucks to cure it is the track bar, and the gear box. $500 sounds about right for a new one, they arent very cheap.

Power steering leak on a 1988 full size bronco


The gear box is a common problem on this model. That would be the place I would start. A cheap, temporary fix is to go to your local parts store and ask for Lucas Power Steering Stop-Leak. It will buy you some time.

Loud noise in the steering column;gear box replacd recently


Believe it or not there are some problems you should take to the dealer. It never was the gear box, its a defective steering column bushing. That problem had a factory notice and the dealer would have diagnosed it immediately an fixed it free parts +$40.install. Tahoes get that problem.
