With jeep off, can reach in and grab the steering shaft, it has about 1/4" play right and left, or clockwise/counterclockwise.


Will adjusting the steering box bolt tighten this up?


Or is that play normal? Last time i really wrenched on a steering issue was about 2010, and i cant recall all the info from then.

I believe it's normal.
It's the same way with mine with my old steering gear and my new one (It was replaced under warranty about 3 weeks ago)


The play should go away when the engine is running... at least that's the way it works for me.
