    I have been driving my truck latly and the steering is pretty unstable. It feels very lose while driving down the road. Iam not sure if I am too use to driving my golf or what I never noticed that it was this bad. Its a sub with 4" RC front springs no swaybar and an ecobit flip for the 56" rear springs. /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Are all of your steering components in good shape? Ball joints,rag joint, tie rod ends, etc

    The tierods were replaced last year before I went to iraq, so not much driving with them. I have a new stablizer and stering block. /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    Frame cracked around steering gear? CHeck that. Mine gets loose every now and then and I just crank down on the gear box bolts and re locktite them and good to go for a few more weeks.
