Power steering question....HELP!


Recommended Posts

Okay Guys, I am planning on adding on power steering (out of an ST model) to my 720 but my current steering box has a little play in it.


My question is: Should i have my current steering box rebuilt? or does my current steering box get swapped out anyways when i install the power steering unit? :confused:

Some of the play can be removed by adjusting it. By far the biggest cause is wear in the idler arm and tie rod ends. Just 1/8" of slack accumulated in all the steering components is magnified by the 19 to 1 ratio of the steering gears and will add up to over 2 1/3" of slop in the steering wheel. Improperly adjusted wheel bearings can also add to this.
