Subject: Steering binds only when cold
IP: Logged

Message:
Love my 1997 Dakota (2WD), but last year the steering began binding and shuddering when I turned the steering wheel...but only if the truck was cold (< 60F). Shuddering does not happen at all in our South Carolina warm weather. I have liberally lubed the U-joints on the intermediate shaft every few months. The binding has returned now that the weather is cooling off again. Trusted mechanic checked the entire frontend and says the bushings and tie rod ends are fine. Any thoughts from the forum? I am concerned the rack and pinion gear may be at fault?
