Steering wheel 90* off
My steering wheel is 90* off to the right. Is there a way to get it off the gearbox and turn the whole shaft? Gearbox is centered and the wheel is on the shaft in the correct orientation. Thanks for any info.
This sleeve is on the drag link (from the pitman arm to the passenger knuckle) loosen the bolts, spray lots of penetrant oil on it, let it soak in and repeat the oil.
Rotating the sleeve, will change the steering wheel position. You'll need to experiment on the rotation to get the wheel in the correct position. If the wheel gets worse go the other direction.

Just adjust the drag link that goes from the pitman arm to the right knuckle. Park it so that the steering wheel is where it is while going straight down the road, leave the column unlocked (but don't have the key "on" and fry the ignition module), loosen the 2 bolts on the adjuster sleeve, and turn it until the steering wheel is straight. Tighten the bolts, test drive. may take a few attempts to get it perfect. Just remember to tighten the bolts!!!
