Last year my steering got pretty loose, quarter turn before anything happened. It turned out I had a cracked power steering pump, and also had to replace my tie rod ends, and drag link, and it was back to working perfectly.
Then it sat on blocks all winter while I was at school, and was fine for the first month of driving. Now it seems to have happened all over again, the steering is really loose. I'll check to see how my power steering fluid is doing to see if it is leaking, and also see if there is play in the tie rod but does anyone have any idea what the problem is?
There has to be something else that is wrong, this isn't normal, even with other people with 35" tires. Also I didn't take it offroad between the new tie rod ends and now.
Thanks guys

Sounds to me like it could be the steering box itself. But to make sure, I would have someone turn the steering wheel all the way back & forth while you sit in front and examine the steering system and look for improper movement. That should give you a good clear indication of what is causing your loose feeling steering.
When you have a choice, buy American.
