    Steer problems

    Steer problems

    I replaced at the tie rods, rebuilt center arm, new steering stabilizer shock, and rebuilt box. The new box was a "round two" addition.

    Steer problems

    I have an 81 hj47 diesel. I put all new steering components on my truck including a rebuilt steering box. I still feel the steering has too much slop. Do I need to convert the steering and if so how should I go about it. I do not have power steering.

    There is some bondo on it; tailgate has rot . Pretty rust free. Not sure on split t case. I think it might be lifted and of course the trailer rims.

    1981 hj47 any idea on value?

    Yes its a LHD. I live in Missouri and had never seen another one so when I saw it for sale on the side of the road I jumped. I'm looking for value on the open market. I haven't decided what I'm going to do with it and I don't want to invest more money than its worth into it. I'm also not sure...
