So you think if I pull one of those washer shims out it might help me pull in some of that steering slop?

That's from the factory?

Picture is worth at least a thousand words. As mentioned that is not stock washers. By only adding them.to the back it help greatly at the firewall to help with a 4" lift. It also created uneven forces on the case steering box housing. I know Toyota over built these but would hate to think what would have happened if just one of the four mounts cracked and box flexed a little until the three just snapped at one time. There is thread some where in the 40 section on previous owners hacks. Believe it's something like Wall of shame. This mod belongs in that thread.

I guess I shouldn’t show a picture of the hood?
