    WDYD 80 series: Replaced Gearbox and Power Steering Pump but still having issues

    I don’t do any crawling, mostly mild offroading and overlanding. I don’t think I am going to get the 105 upgrade based on what I am hearing and what Redhead suggested. Going to replace the gearbox and see if that fixes my issues. May check for a bent steering shaft/column. Does anyone have a...

    WDYD 80 series: Replaced Gearbox and Power Steering Pump but still having issues

    @JunkCrzr89 I have heard great things about redhead as well. Kind of regret not going with them from the get go. @Broski what’s interesting to me about redhead is that when I called them a few months back, they didn’t recommend the 105 shaft for my 35” set up. They said it is better when used...

    WDYD 80 series: Replaced Gearbox and Power Steering Pump but still having issues

    @Dusten I haven’t done any of the troubleshooting you have suggested so it makes sense the more I read it. Thank you for putting forward - I greatly appreciate it. I am going to validate whether the steering column is indeed bent or if any of the other troubleshoots help me fix my problem...

    WDYD 80 series: Replaced Gearbox and Power Steering Pump but still having issues

    Hey Peeps, Hoping to get some feedback from some of you gurus on IH8mud. I have a 1994 FZJ80 and have been having issues with steering play at certain speeds as well as steering stiffness when idle or driving at slow speeds. In a way to tackle this, considering that my 80 has over 240k...
