Also need to know if it is a stock steering gear and pump?
Did it just happen out of the blue or after something was changed?
thing is that its a handmedown from my old man thats been sitting in a garage for years and years. i dont know much about the jeep. i get it back on monday and maybe you guys could lend me a hand with this stuff!
so do you guys think i should try to fix myself (i have a brother in law thats good with cars) or maybe send it in to a pro? how much am i looking at. remember, im only 18 lol and this is my first car.
I dented a steering stabilizer once and it caused the steering to not return to center. Also drove a Saburban to Colorado after the steering box was adjusted and that thing darted all over the road. It got better on it's own some way, wasn't my rig to mess with anyway.
You don't have a stable steering platform. The entire Jeep is sitting on basically 2X4 blocks. You don't need that kind of lift for 35s, and it's dangerous. You know that quick-steering you have? That is a big contributor to it. You can keep it SOA and still fit 35s without the blocks, and have a much safer, controllable Jeep, along with a couple other important mods. With the configuration you have now, Widow-Maker fits! That was cool in the '70s and early '80s, but it never was a sensible thing to do. Not that your dad isn't sensible... well, he rides bulls.
