New steering gear and still play in steering
I have a 2001 dodge ram 2500 5.9 gas and had a new steering gear installed and still play. I replaced the air bag clockspring and had to take off the steering wheel. Could I have made a mistake with putting the wheel back on or is it the track bar or lower steering shaft bushings? Any one that can help?
The track bar, tie rods, drag link, ball joints, intermediate shaft and wheel bearings can all have looseness in them that will add up to play in the steering. The gear box is just one small part of the equation.
