hi im alex, have you raised the front end and seen if it is easy to turn the wheel, sounds like stiff knuckles
could i get the last 8 of your vin# *****
ok i would lift the front end if you have the ability and see how hard it is to turn. have the knuckles been greased latley?
ok let me know what you find
Yes if you have rusty dust I would say they haven't been greased in a while. I would grease them really good purge all the old grease or dust out drive it 5 or 10 miles and then lift it back up and check for play, the wheel should be easy to turn with it off the ground, if it's not then I would replace the king pins,
like you turn the steering shaft and the output shaft does not turn right away? or where is the play? only thing you can adjust is the relief plungers
attached is the gear manual
do you need any more help with this?

Yeah that's not good sounds like box is toast. How long was the fluid low? Might have been a while
I can look up warranty history but that won't tell us much, since it is an '05.
oh ok sorry, got ya. as far as i know there is no adjustment to the input shaft, usually when there is that much play the input shaft has been twisted or there is rack damage, you can take it apart but we dont for liability reasons we jus replace them
only adjustment i know of is the pressure relief valves and that wont change the play in the shaft
puller is a kent moore J-39256,
no the kent moore is not the same at that OTC the one you ordered on amazon looks like it should work
