2002 GMC Yukon V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 142000 miles
Had a bad steering gear that was hard to turn to the right. It has a Delphi gear instead of a saginaw. It also has power boost brakes instead of vacumn. Ok heres the problem, replaced the gear and pitman arm. Used the seatbelt and power seat to keep the wheel straight and where it was when removed. Of course I disabled the airbags. The gear is not splined, it only has a square side and a slot for the bolt. Pitman arm is also keyed with 4 areas of two solid teeth, as the output is the opposite. I put the new assembly on and it lined right up, no movement needed. When I started to test drive it the steering wheel is at 90 degrees from where it should be, and the sevice stablity message is coming on and the engine light is also on.
have the same problem?
