93 Feroza.Heavy on Steering.
« on: February 24, 2018, 07:00:58 PM »
g`day Fellas,
I got bogged on my local beach,and after finally getting clear, the steering was extremely hard to turn the wheel.After a Kilm or so I got off the beach,& the steering  improved,but was still heavy.Local mechanic replaced left steering rod,and it was ok for a time.Back on the beach some time later,and the steering  once again became stiff.Had a wheel alignment done,the guy said it was out by 6 mil.Still heavy on steering especially when in reverse.hhhhhheeeelllllpppppp...  :014:

Hey there!

Did they check the rest of your steering gear at the same time? It sounds like something is worn or loose if you have this problem each time at the beach.

Does your rig have power steering? Is the pump working?

No,I dont have power steering,but it is hard on steering wether I`m on the beach or the highway. The Steering specialist went right over it,but could not find any problems.He said I may have to  have the suspension checked. But surely it would have been obvious when up on the hoist.

He was n ot a steering sprcialist,But a Wheel alignment specialist. I have been refered to a Handy man Mechanic who has worked on Ferozas,& he sais he woul take a look next week for me. Got me stumped ,but I am no mechanic, just someone who loves his Feroza.
