Re: How to straighten steering wheel w/o getting aligned
[ QUOTE ]
- Locate the steering box under the front of the truck. Find the rod that goes from the steering box to the passenger side wheel assembly. What you need to do is to adjust the length of this rod to center the steering wheel. The length of this rod does not affect alignment, only the centering of the wheel. DO NOT ADJUST THE ROD THAT GOES FROM DRIVER'S SIDE WHEEL TO THE PASSENGER SIDE WHEEL.
[/ QUOTE ] This procedure will not work on a normal Ford van steering linkage, any movement of the adjusting sleeves will alter the toe settings. The only correct way is to have it realigned.
On a Super Duty or Excursion 4X4 this method will work.
