My 97 4wdCC has been progressively been getting harder to steer. It doesn't wander or have a lot of slack in the wheel or leaks in PS and its full. Lately its got a creaking sound coming from the wheel, like a broken spring makes in a tape measure. It's almost non-power assist now. At first I thought the box was just going bad but now I'm wondering if it might be in the wheel/column.
Doesn't roll with anyone or tag along to be cool...
