Steering Box Adjustment???

My Blazer has a lot of slack, the steering wheel is not centered, and it kinda pulls to the right.
The truck was recently alligned and the ragjoint is fine.

Can a zq8 box be adjusted?

Reason I ask is because my truck only has about 36k miles, therefore I find it hard to believe that it already broke.

Yes, there is an adjustment screw on the lower side of the unit.

Re: Steering Box Adjustment???

the screw adjusts the preload on the gears in the box,it'll usually wear out faster once you tighten it.

You want to be careful what you adjust and how..Here's something I keep
handy. Click the pics and then click again for close ups. Diagram 5 should
help you out some..
