[DML] Re: Steering problem



Kevin,

Your hard steering sounds similar to a problem I experienced a few 
years ago.  It WAS the U-joint in the steering.

I removed the joint and soaked the joint in 90 weight gear oil, heated 
near the boiling point for a period of about 8 hours.  This seemed to 
force the lube into the joint and the problem has never returned.

<<<<This is a potential safety hazard (i.e. "BOOM").  Be careful.....

Another possible problem could be a break in the collapsable part of 
the column.  This is visible under the dash.
