You say you have a wobble. I would check the lower bearing on the lower column of the steering shaft(firewall). Mine gave me that as well. Also the coupler gave out which connects to the gearbox. Although I have PS. Hope that helps.
Lockplate, retaining clip, and cancelling cam should be in tomorrow. I had no issues with wobble when I had the grant wheel installed. The intermediate shaft and lower coupler have been replaced. The Jeep was initially a manual steering, but has had a J20 power steering box conversion. I called the parts house and it was no cheaper than getting it online. Since they didn't have the other two parts, I just figured thats one less stop I have to make on the way home.
I hope to have it all in and installed by the end of the weekend. I'll report back on Monday as to how its doing. Thanks
An update on the steering column. Added the lock plate, retainer ring, anti theft plate and got everything tightened back down. It is no better than it was when I started. So I guess I'll drive it a little longer until I find a better column. It is just a ranch jeep so I'm not too worried about it long term. But, I'd still like it right. I guess I'll keep on at it...
Cow juice, yes. It was a bear to get the ring installed. Took lots of pressure.
Truvol, can the lower bearing be replaced from under good or does the whole column have to be taken apart?
Yes. Its under your brake booster. You will have to disconnect your steering shaft at firewall under hood to replace it. My needle bearings were completely gone. Also check your coupler. It attaches to your gearbox. Mine was blown out. It shouldn't make any kind of clicking noise.
Ok. The steering coupler is new, as I had to replace it when I swapped over to power steering. I'll try the lower bearing. See if that helps matters. Thanks
I bought the plastic retainer, bearing, and clip all together for 15 dollars. Make sure you pack the new bearing with grease cause my new one didn't have any and the bearing snaps into the plastic retainer. My old one wouldn't even stay in place.
