Steering box issue

I have read through numerous steering related threads and have come to the conclussion that I should not just start loosening bolts and turning screws. I have a 79 Cj-7 stock (31" tires, no lift), and yes, the steering wanders. I have narrowed the slop down to the place where the steering shaft goes into the steering box. None from the wheel down to the shaft, none outside of the box.

Question: What is the safest way to tighten this area up?

Sorry about the re-thread but I don't feel comfortable messing with the box from the threads I have read.
