I'm not sure where to look anymore...

I changed the steering box in my 84 W350, the steering colum isn't jamming, and I can't see anything binding in the steering linkages;

It will turn hard left, but won;t go right. will go straight. From hard left to where it stops is 4 turns of the steering wheel.

:dontknow:

you forgot to center the steering box should only have two full turns of the steering wheel each way. easy fix..

ok, so how do I center the steering box? Second question is why did this happen to two boxes in a row?

I never removed the pitman arm from either box.

The Correct answer was bent Drag link. Didn't see the bend until I had a new one directly beside it on the shop floor.
