hello, the true way to isolate is to disconnect the tierod ends at the steering knuckles -- this will isolate the steering box from the tierod and ball joints,tim

is their a grease fitting for the steering box.. will that help.. do you know if spraying wd-40 around the fittings or linkages will help loosen it up.. can this problem be in the steering pump?

Expert:  TIM replied 7 years ago.
grease may help if it is a ball joint seizing up -- wd40 will not help -- and the box is lubricated internally with power steering fluid-- and if the pump is not working -- there will be no power steering,tim
