Maybe 2 days ago I noticed a slight click in the steering wheel when ever I began to turn left or right. Not to say that it click through the entire turn but rather a small click at the beginning of each turn of the steering wheel, (moving or stationed). I checked the lower shaft steering column and I can twist it with my hand about that same amount I can twist it when I feel/hear it from the steering wheel. So I’m assuming that’s what the click is. Any guidance as to what this may be? Something wrong with the upper steering shaft? The lower? Or even just a bolt needing to be replaced? Here’s a link to a pic with the lower steering shaft highlighted to show what I was able to twist to get that same noise from the steering wheel. —-> https://ibb.co/s93T9nc —> https://ibb.co/7QGYbbH
Hello Folks, This is my first time posting as I recently bought my first WD21 and haven't had time to post an Intro or anything yet. I have an '88 WD21 acquired about a month ago, I've put a 2.5" lift on using Rough Country UCAs & shocks (for now), Swayaway bars and JGC springs. I got all my parts together to do a 2WD steering setup, and the Moog center link has a multi-piece design with a strangely-fitted hollow rod crimped to two solid outer portions. To me, this looks like a very bad design and a terrible way to save a few dollars on production costs. So I ordered an AC Delco CL (same part, different box) from another source, wanting to try my luck and see if I could get an older stock version that is monolithic all the way through. Negative - the Delco part is the same deal. Both parts are 555 Japan parts, by the way. Does anyone have any experience with this style of center links? They just look like two added failure modes to me. I'm pretty frustrated because right now the Pathfinder is held up until I put a new center link in, and I'm running out of time before bad weather and already ran out of time for the start of a new school quarter. I have a new 4WD CL that I was going to return (ordered before I learned about the 2WD setup), but I'm wondering if I should scrap the 2WD swap and just install the 4WD stuff instead to get the Pathfinder back on the road. If anyone who has experience with this swap or this style of center link has any strong feelings about the matter, please chime in! I can try ordering a different cheaper brand of center link with hopes of it being solid/monolithic. I really like the 555/Moog stuff but this is a major let-down.
