How to Properly Adjust Your Steering Box

 

ADJUSTING GEAR SHAFT AND WORM IN VEHICLE (STEERING BOX)

      (1)   Disconnect arm at bottom of steering box from the steering link

(2)   Turn the steering to half way through the turning cycle---check for backlash by moving steering back and forth

(3)   If there is play-loosen adjustment bolt and nut at top side of steering box and adjust to remove free play-keeping in mind not to bind gear with over tightening

(4)   While holding the adjustment screw with a screw driver-tighten the lock nut

(5)   Reinstall steering gear arm

(6)   The key to this adjustment-is to not over tighten
