Got any pics? You'll have to lower the steering box. I can take pics of mine tomorrow.

"Mick" is the resident sas expert here. If nothing else try sending him a private message.

Without pictures it's going to be difficult to help you diagnose your problem. May I suggest you take the card from your camera and plug it into a public computer at your local library. You will need a Photobucket account to load pictures to this forum. Here's how to do it: http://forums.amceaglenest.com/index.php?topic=6725.0

I finally took a couple pics. Mine is lower and forward by quite a bit.

OK...I see the steering gear is already lowered. Now, exactly how does it behave when you drive it? Does it wander? Is it tracking straight? Does it try to change lanes when you step on the brakes? Are the front tires wearing unevenly?

Ralph, the pics of the steering  box are from my Eagle for Toby to reference. He hasn't hooked up his steering or driven it yet.

Here are some more pics from Toby. He temporarily hooked up the steering so he could move it out of the shop.

OOPS :-[ I should have known...your pics were clearly headed with your screen name. I posted in a hurry and just didn't notice what I was doing. Now back to the regularly-scheduled thread... :eagle:

Well, how'd it go? What did you do to get the steering to work?
