Movement between steering shaft & steering box.
My steering wheel has been developing quite a bit of play in it, mostly when turning to the right. I've narrowed it down to where the steering shaft slides onto the steering box. I can actually slide the shaft up and down on the steering box about a half inch, even after tightening the bolt around the collar that holds it in place. I'm thinking that IS NOT supposed to be like that, but I'd like to know for sure before I go any further. I've been doing some reading up on this & I see that the steering box can be adjusted, but I'd like to know if there is supposed to be any play where the shaft meets the box. I'm thinking I probably need either a new box or a new shaft but I figure I'd give the box adjusting a try first. The rest of the steering components are fine (TRE's, draglink, steering stabilizer, pitman arm, etc.) Thanks.
