    I have way too much play in my steering and the steering wheel is way off center. All my bushings look good and the tie rods look good. Is there a way to adjust this or what should I be looking at?
    Thanks

    Have you checked the ball joints?

    Also check your:

    draglink
    steering arm
    front u-bolts

    to see if they are tight.

    Thanks guy I checked everything out and it's all straight and tight. I just got done off roading and now the steering wheel is straight. How weird. Is there an adjustment on the steering box? By the way it's power steering.
