econoline 300 not steering right. what can this mean.
The steering is really washy. I think it is the idler arm bushing. This is a motorhome version. Any better ideas on how to fix it.

best do it yourself method is to lay down in front of vehicle and have someone move streering wheel back and forth.starting with left tierod end ,work your way accross the tierods to the right wheel looking formovement that is sloppy.the idler arm will move up and down if bad.also check the shaft that gose to the wheel making sure the output shaft from streering box moves in a tight movement .these boxes are a problem most of the time
