you guys think this is a bad ball joint? It requires almost 2 times the input to get the same amount of steering. I've had bad ball joints but this seems extreme. The pisser is everything felt great when doing the suspension install. Any thoughts?

Default Don't shoot the messenger...

Assuming correct fluid level: Bad rack.

Where did you get the one you installed? I'm guessing it was a rebuilt unit. Bummer.

and the level is good. At least I know the rack isn't a hard job but it's a pisser to have to redo it so soon =(

Default Maybe it will do nothing but lash adjustment? I'm a little unsure after looking at...

several posts. Is the adjuster the bolt that the green paint crosses over? Or is it under that bolt? Thanks ya'all
