Loose Steering right side only

Hi all,

I've noticed that the steering on my Jeep is loose when turning right. When turning left it seems to be OK. What would cause steering to be loose on one side and not the other? Any input would be greatly appreciated, I have no idea where to start...

Start with the basics , crawl under and check.

I hate when old people poke me at weddings, point and whisper, "You're next." So I've started doing the same thing to them at funerals

If only one side, I would check the condition of the ball joints or U-Joints on the axle if you have them and not CV.

Check bottom bolts on the track bar bracket.

I thought that also. Would assume he would be hearing a clunk somewhere though or sloppy steering on both sides?
