Power steering control valve may have too much play in it.
Best bet is s/can all the p/s stuff not in use and get a
manual steering center link. Find a old school real steel
Mechanic that knows what to do and give him these
Alignment specs. camber .25 +\- .25 caster left side
- 1.5 right Side -1.0 +\- .5 degrees toe .20
That will help your cause at the same time if your money
Ain't right turn the steering wheel to right till it locks look
Behind left front tire you will see two 7/16s bolts at the
End of the center link - control valve remove them , under
the end cup you will find a 3rd bolt that will adjust the cups
that holds the ball that comes off The pitman arm,adjust-
ment can be done there to remove play. I think that is called
The steering sector . Been a while since I worked on one.
If it has too much play there,it could fall apart so you need
To do something.....I would still get the alignment done too
good luck.
