Thats good to hear, but you need a track bar on that, otherwise it is very unsafe to drive...the axle will move side to side while you drive, as well as move back and forth on each side.

you may want to put that steering box screw back where it was
its not really made for corrective adjustment, if I recall its a adjust one time deal and then leave alone

you could cause it to bind up, but not 110% sure

You could be right. Mine started binding, the catch was I made a large adjustment. Meaning I pretty much bottomed it out, but it did make a notable difference in the road feel. Which since I have purchased a replacement.

To your question big blue i just used it to pick the front end up when i bought you have no idea how many people in gas stations and such ask me what thats for and I tell them thats the only thing holding it in the worst thing is people believe me and freak out and to Jsoko I dont know man i had it jacked up and after i adjusted it (ony about a half turn on the stud) I turned the wheels back and fourth like a hundred times to make sure it didnt hit any quote by a boy who works with me sticky spots and it didnt and it doesnt seem to be binding on asphalt to me but your probably completly right at this point if i wear it out ill buy a new one i guess I'm just ready to be done with it lol I have a new box in my plans anyway just because I figure I might as well beings that everything else under the front end it new

My 96 does tha same thang.....except my wheel weights fell off and my tire is wavey in the tread. Check those 2 thangs, sometimes its the simplist thangs that'll give ya the most problems.

Just a good ole boy with redneck tendencies.
