I put my jack stands under the front sway bar mounts.. probably not ideal but I didn't relish the oil pan lift method I had read elsewhere on this board.I know, I know..I am an old thread regurgitator...
There were a few variations on a theme here on the box adjustment methodology.
I am tackling this tommorrow...
Whats the definitive tool set for successful adjustment...
Supplimentary Q...Whats the best position in front for the axle stands?
Apparently it is not a typo as questioned in your other posts and your profile. There is no such thing as a 1988 SLC. Production of the 107 SLC ended with the 1981 model. Post your VIN and we can tell you what it is.I have a 1988 450 SLC and the steering is very loose please tell me where to adjust on the steering box
You would have to remove the pitman arm and probably the exhaust manifold, which at that point it would just be easier to remove the box and adjust it on the bench. Reseal while your at it.Re-igniting old thread after reading through scores of posts, i have a question about this process. I've loosened the lock nut, but the internal allen key bolt won't turn without the lock nut also turning.
Can i remove the whole adjustment assembly and then separate the Allen key bolt from the lock nut on the work bench without losing too much fluid or other re- assembly issues?
Or is this a sign of another underlying issue?
