I have a 1988 Ranger 4x4.
While driving, the truck will wander to the left. The steering seems slow to respond to my movement of the steering wheel to correct it. Than the correction seems to happen all at once.
It is to the point where I don't like to drive it as it gets pretty scary when all this happens.
Here are some things I've noticed etc.
The left front tire has a little play in it when you grab it and go side to side or up/down. I thought the bearing was out, but the shop said the bearing is fine. They did say I need need shocks.
Power steering leaks a little.
Gear Box has been tightened.
Steering wheel had a lot of play in it up/down, side to side. I used some zip ties around the colum, but I know I'm missing the real issue here.
I'm new so I Thank you for all your help and I'll do my best to answer any questions.
I just want to figure this out or get an avenue to travel down to try and pin point the issue so I can drive it.
