1976 cj5 steering box(loud Pop)

Hey guys I'm a new cj5 owner.
I am hearing this loud pop whenever I turn the wheels all the to the left.
I found the bolt closest to the engine or steering arm on top to be loose on the steering box. My question is how to tighten that damn thing? Do I have to drop the entire steering box?

Is it the bolts to the frame or on top of the actual box itself? Power steering or manual?
