Message:
I've been having a popping noise in my steering column on my 98 4x4. The ball joints have already been replaced on both sides. Anybody have similar problem or know what it could be?

I read a fix for that some where. It basically suggested that the column is misaligned. If I remeber correctly it said to loosen all of the column bolts and try to postion the column straight, then retorque the bolts. I had a popping noise in my column and it turned out to be the steering shaft.

I also had a popping noise in my steering column, would disappear when I sprayed wd40 on the U joints down near the rack. Eventually replaced the joint to make things quiet....

2wd here....Do the 4wd have racks?? or u joints??
