How do i adjust steering linkage so there isnt as much play in it


The only adjustment you can make would be the thrust bearing in the steering box. This is the bolt with the straight slot on top and it has a nut at the base. You would raise the front wheels to get the weight off, and then have an assistant move the steering wheel slightly left, slightly right. Unscrew the base nut and tighten the slotted stem bolt down until you get less slop in the steering gears.
There should be some play.

The tierod ends, both inner and outer should be tight. The threads you see on the rods are for Front-end Alignment only, and are not meant to tighten any slack. There should be no slack. You have a pivot arm on the opposite side of the frame from the steering box. The bushing in this arm can wear out, check for slack. It can be changed independently without affecting alignment.

Everyone has a method. Mine is to keep 1 wheel on the ground and jack the weight off the other so I can feel the play side to side. Remember to check your Balljoints while you do the linkage. It is possible to have 1 bad tierod end causing all the problems.

Power Steering Pump - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Cirrus, Stratus, Sebring Convertible and Breeze
(see Figures 1, 2, 3 and 4)
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the left strut tower. The ground cable is equipped with an insulator grommet, which should be placed on the stud to prevent the negative battery cable from accidentally grounding.
  2. Siphon as much power steering fluid out of the reservoir as possible.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. Remove the right front tire and wheel assembly.
  5. Remove the splash shield from the right front wheel well.

Fig. 2: Power steering pressure hose attachment to the pump-without Variable-Assist steering
  1. Disconnect the power steering pressure hose from the pump.
  2. Remove the hose connection on the power steering pump.

Fig. 3: Typical power steering pump front bracket attachment
  1. Remove the power steering adjusting bolt.
  2. Remove the power steering pump rear attaching bolt.
  3. If so equipped, remove the Anti-lock Brake System (ABS) hydraulic control unit heat shield.
  4. Remove the wheel speed sensor retainer bracket from the right inner fender.
  5. Remove the wheel speed sensor sealing grommet from the right inner fender.
  6. Disconnect the speed sensor wiring.
  7. Push the wiring through the hole in the inner fender.
If not equipped with anti-lock brakes, the hole will just have a sealing plug.
  1. Remove the bolt attaching the power steering front bracket to the mounting bracket. Access to the bolt is gained through the hole for the speed sensor wiring.
  2. Remove the power steering pump drive belt.
  3. Remove the power steering pump and the front bracket as an assembly.
To install:
  1. Install the power steering pump and bracket.
  2. Reinstall the bolt at the adjusting slot, but do not tighten.
  3. Reinstall the bolt mounting the power steering pump to the rear mounting bracket, but do not tighten.
  4. Reinstall the power steering pump top bolt, but do not tighten.
  5. Reconnect the power steering hoses.

Fig. 4: Install a new O-ring gasket on the hose fitting
Use a new O-ring when reinstalling the power steering pressure hose.
  1. Reinstall the drive belt.
  2. Adjust the drive belt and tighten the power steering pump bolts to 40 ft. lbs. (54 Nm).
  3. Reinstall the splash shield.
  4. Reinstall the tire and wheel assembly.
  5. Lower the vehicle.
  6. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
  7. Refill the reservoir and bleed the power steering system.


Sebring Coupe and Avenger
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove (drain, suction pump, etc.) as much power steering fluid as possible.
  3. Disconnect the return fluid line. Remove the reservoir cap and allow the return line to drain the fluid from the reservoir. If the fluid is contaminated, disconnect the ignition high tension cable and crank the engine several times to drain the fluid from the gearbox.
Cover any components located underneath the power steering pump with a shop towel to protect them from damage due to power steering fluid spillage. For example, the A/C compressor or alternator, depending on vehicle and engine, is below the power steering pump, so cover the A/C compressor or alternator with a shop towel before removing any hoses.
  1. Loosen (but do not remove) the power steering pump mounting bolts and remove the drive belt.
  2. Remove the pressure switch connector from the side of the pump.
  3. Disconnect the pressure line.
  4. Unbolt and remove the pump from the mounting bracket.
To install:
  1. Clean all parts well. Inspect the pump pulley for cracks. Check the hoses carefully for cracks or signs of weakness.
  2. Install the pump, wrap the belt around the pulley and lightly tighten the mounting bolts.
  3. Replace the O-rings and connect the pressure line. Connect the pressure line so the notch in the fitting aligns and contacts the pump's guide bracket. Tighten the fitting to 13 ft. lbs. (18 Nm).
  4. Connect the return line and secure with the clamp.
  5. Fasten the pressure switch connector.
  6. Adjust the power steering belt for proper tension and tighten the adjusting bolts.
Use only MOPAR ATF PLUS automatic transmission fluid type 7176, ATF+3 automatic transmission fluid, or equivalent, in the power steering system of Sebring coupe and Avenger models.
  1. Refill the reservoir and bleed the power steering system.

Hope this help to solve it (remember comment and rated this). TY for using Fixya.

Excessive play in steering


There should be a bolt sticking out of the steering box with 1 or 2 nuts on the bolt. This is a thrust setting which puts load on the steering gear. Most people jack the front wheels off the ground and then back off the nut or nuts. You then turn the bolt to screw further into the steering box until you have 1/2 inch or less of play in the steering wheel. Then tighten the nut or nuts down and recheck to see if setting held.
