When my suzuki sierra is travelling around 60km on a bumpy road , the stearing would shake violently untill I reduced speed???????
was told that the steering box would need replacing!
First, I made an adjustment on the steering box via the adjustment screw. The problem then was resolved, only for a few weeks and now is back!!!! Would I be correct in deducing that the steering box is the cause of the wobble and that now after the adjustment the box should be replaced???
Thanks for any responses
KIND Regards Ben
Hi Ben, I battled for a long time with my Samurai with this. Changed wheels and tyres twice, done wheel agignment, balancing, the works. Checked for play on suspention components - to no avail. Also reset the steering box up a little, and she was better fir a week or so, and then started again. I decided to adjust the steering play again, but this time so much that the steering wheel did not want to return to it`s position after turning. Came back home and set it back untill the steering just, just returned to its position after negotiating a turn. She seems to be absolutely fine now. Please do not over adjust jout steering box, for it wil cause ball bearing failure inside the steering box. Also first ensure your tytre pressure is the same, wheels balanced, and no other play on front syspention.
Good Luck, and please keep us posted
