Hey fellas, my 97 7.3L 4x4
HD 214k miles on clock, has as much play in the steering wheels as an old farm tractor and I've rebuilt the entire front end all ball joints, tie rods, arms, front axle, pulled hubs apart complete rebuild and repacked wheel bearings,seals, you name it....Anyway, I can't figure out why she has soo much play in the steering wheel, starting to scare me...this is the last thing I've yet to replace will that fix it?
Also, every so often when turning onto an incline parking lot or hill (only when turning putting the truck off balance (one side higher than the other), I keep hearing a loud "Pop" noise like a spring pop out of place or something but i keep checking and nothing is out of the ordinary or loose that i can tell...do you think this is the shocks?
Thanks in advance for any help
Thinkin about headin up to local parts store and pickin up one tomorrow?
