I need to do some front end work on mine too. I can probably turn the wheel 5* off center in both directions before I get any actual steering response. Makes it kind of annoying pulling a trailer in wind.

I don't have any other unusual problems up front other than that, hopefully its not the steering column and just the tie rods being worn out.

only when turning dave? did you do the bearings to spec? if not, the preload may be loose on the left bearing, and it's dropping into/out of place during the right turn?

my instructor which is ASE certified in practically everything did that side as i was putting the drivers side back together. I would hope he friggin did the procedure correctly.

can i tighten the castle nut 1 or 2 "notches" where the cotter pin goes or do i have to do the entire procedure again? I know he tightened it to preload it, but i'm wondering if he backed off the nut too far?

AFAIK that "clunk" wasn't there before. I'm just afraid i'm gonna bust something really bad if that's the case.
