    Have someone cycle the wheel back and forth while you inspect each part of the steering system...before you adjust that nut. 99% of the time something is broken, cracked, worn or loose and the box doesn't need any adjustment.

    everything is new in the front there are no cracks i check when the box was off. All new tie rod ends cross over is maybe 1000 miles on it all the king pin bushings and springs and i did the steering shaft with the u-joints in it. So the only thing would be the box but i will double check the wheel bearings those are new too but don't hurt to check. Thanks Denny

    Double check the box bolts are tight...I've had mine back out a few times now.
