    I have been hearing a clunk in my steering for a couple weeks now, but yesterday when I was doing a bunch of errands my OH $HIT alarm went off when I heard a very pronounced clunk and the steering darted to the left under hard acceleration. So I babied it back to the shop and had a buddy cycle the steering. Well the whole gear box is loose on the frame. NOT falling off, YET... But moves around a lot. So obviously I am going to tighten it today, but I am wondering if anyone makes any accessories for the steering box to stiffen it, help support and secure it, and protect it.

    This is for the 89 Sub .75ton.

    Thanks

    ORD - They R Gooooood.

    I ordered the stiffener and the frame repair kit, just in case there are cracks.

    I guess I have lots of work ahead of me.

    Woo Hoo
