    Hi,
    I'v done a x-over conversion on my blazer. It drives much better, but it still has alot of slop in the wheel. I'v checked the
    steering box bolts and they are tight. Tie-rods and hiem joints are good. The slop really seems to be from the box itself. It
    is an AGR 4x2 box. I'v read that some guys have tightened the preload screw on top of the box. Is this really the right way to do it? Will it cause the gears to mesh more? Will it shorten the life of the box?
    Any info will help.
    Thanks
    Russ
