Cool Ranger Slack in Steering

OK ive got a 97 ranger and i have an extreme amount of slack in the steering. Ive tried adjusting the steering box but that didnt really have any effect on it.
The truck has 246,000 miles on it and i know steering components just need to be replaced.
My quesiton is what steering component could I replace that would take the most slack outa the steering ?

Default Re: Ranger Slack in Steering

Find out where the slack is. I would look at the tie rod ends first and work my way in.
