CJ7 Play in Steering
i tried changing the steering Box and i still have the problem... when i drive it. the play makes it difficult to drive .There is approximately 2inches of play in the steering without the tires moving .Any ideas?
You just need to have someone work the play back and forth while you examine to determine which component isn't responding to the movement. The play could be anywhere in the steering linkage.

I can send you a Walmart Album of how I replaced my Steering gear...and a little trick to take some of the play out, not in the gear itself.
You DO NOT WANT TO ADJUST THE NUT ON TOP!!!!
It is for initial NEW set-up!
If you turn it in too much/ or at all.........
YOU RISK LOCKING IT UP--YOU WILL FIGURE THAT OUT AT 55MPH, WHEN IT WILL NOT TURN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
