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?

steering on that jeep should be all manual . tighten it with a wrench , ive recently broke 3 out of 4 bolts that hold my steering box on during a recent offroad adventure with friends . grab a wrench and start turning .
