Hey guys...I was changing my oil today and as the pan was draining I got out from under the truck and was looking into the front driver side wheel well...Just to the right of upper hanger for the shock you can see the slip joint in the steering shaft that goes from the steering wheel to the steering gear box. I have been noticing lately that there seems to be some play in my steering wheel (but doesn't feel like steering box play) so I grabbed that slip joint and I could wiggle it about 1/2" in each direction. Not IN and OUT, but away from me and towards me. Is it time for a new shaft or should that play be there since its a slip joint?
