Well after snapping the sector shaft on my blazer a couple of weeks back, I told myself that I would take it easy with the wheel until I can get get Hydro-assist. Um, yeah. To make a long story short, I broke one ear off the box, stripped the threads out of another hole, sheared a bolt off in the gear and for the remaining bolt.... it pulled through the sleave and was barely keeping the box on the truck. I was in a deep mud rut with the tires turned all the way right. I was trying to hop it out of the hole when I heard two snaps that didn't sound good. I began backing it out of the hole and noticed that as I turned my steering wheel it had no effect on the tires?! I guess that even after red locktighting all bolts when I installed this box, a couple somehow wiggled loose and allowed enough play to ruin my night. I have had the bolts loosen up before and it was noticeable. No forewarning this time... crack, snap! Nothing like laying in a mud puddle at 3am wondering if you are gonna get your truck home.
