I have probable 2 inches of play in my steering wheel. From what I understand its a common problem with the blazers. Wheres a good place to start guys?

The First Thing I'd Check Is The Sterring Shaft, Going Down To The Sterring Box Look Clostly At The U Joint On That Shaft. For Looseness, And Rust At Caps. Also Check the Idler Arm And Pitman Arm, A High Failure Rate On These Trucks,

Good Luck,
Edward S.

Its been like this for a few years. Doesnt seem to be getting any worse. Is it safe to drive until I get the money together to fix it?

Hi, What I Would Do Is Have The Whole Front End Checked Out By Your Mechanic. Then You Will Get A Better Idea. If It's Safe Or Not, Too Drive.

Good Luck,
