hey guys,

quick question. Is there an adjustment for the steering wheel other than adjusting the tow? I'got mine to drive pretty straight but I have quite a bit of play in the wheel. For example, if I'm going straight and the wheel is at 12:00 position, I can move it to 11 or 1 with no affect.  I do know my rag joing could stand to be replaced but is there another adjustment? I see what appears to be an adjusstment on the steering box with a nut and flathead combo but wanted to ask first.  Undecided
Thanks
Charlie

Charlie, not sure it will help with your problem but there is some adjustment in the box.  Here's a site that talks about the adjustment.

Charlie I was able to adjust the steering on my old jeep by adjusting that screw and nut. I'm sure it's the same on our cars too. Bob
