I lifted the front wheels off the ground today to check if I needed new pitman and idler and the wheels were not locked. Key was off. I could turn them both directions all the way. Is something broke?

They took them out for safety. Early C5's would engage while you were driving down the road.:eek: So they canned it.

You need them.

But if you want to test it leave the LH wheel on the ground and jack the RH wheel off the ground via the a-arm. You may also want someone to hold the LH wheel to further resist motion and/or lower tire psi/ park on a coarse surface...
