I TELL YOU HOW TO CENTER IT. FIRST YOU WSHOULD ALIGN THE PITMAN ARM SLOT TO THE BOX(INTER A 6MM DRILL OR ALEN WRENCH) AFTER THAT YOU EITHER ADJUST IT WITH STEERING WHEEL IF IT IS OUT LESS THAN 12 DEGREE OR DISCONNECT THE LOWER I-SHAFT FROM THE BOX AND RECONNECT . WHEN THE STEERING IS IN THE STRAIT POSITION YOU SHOULD ONLY BE ABLE TO TURN YOUR WHEEL BETWEEN 1 AND3/4 T0 2 TURN IN EACH DIRECTION. GOOD LUCK

Ther is an adjustment on the steering link between the drop arm ball joint and the oppositi wheel . Loosen the clamps and turn the shaft with a pipe wrench while noting the steering position.

Steering wheel adjustment , the steering whell is 90degrees off but the car does not pull eather direction. car was stolen no damage just steering whell truned


jack front of car up then turn steering wheel full lock to full lock and count the number of turns from either side then divide by 2 so you have the straight ahead position then remove the steering wheel and replace in the straight ahead position ,iam saying this because the vehicle may have been re tracked and only one track rod end adjusted so you have say 2 turns to the left and 2 and half to the right if you follow me .or remove the steering wheel then just hold it on and slowly drive forewards and lift wheel and refit to the correct position

Power steering drifts over uneven pavement


Lift the front of the pickup and try to shake the wheel. If it moves then a part (a bearing, a bolt or a pivot) of the front suspension is loose or worn out. 
If you can't feel it moving tell to another person to move the steering wheel while you hold the wheel. If the movement isn't exact and immediate the problem is in the steering box. For this specific tools are required - it's better to take it to a repair shop, you definitely wouldn't want to gamble with your safety

1984 Toyota PU 4WD 22R Engine Makes Squealing noise at PS pump


you have to bleed the power steering system. you have someone turn the wheels to the left while you watch the power steering fluid level adding as needed. than repeat turning the wheels to the right. and repeat until the noise seems to get quieter and you don't have to ad any more fluid.
