Play on steering column?
So, after work i decided to check under my jeep one last time before i swapped out my lower control arms to try and find the problem with my steering, i popped my hood open and from the driver side (of course) 3'' away from my firewall i decided to grab my steering column (shaft?) and pull?push on it and the results were not what i was expecting. Is there supposed to be play on that shaft?
Can anyone check on there jeeps to see if you guys get the same results? Chances are i don't need new LCA and just a steering column.
Provably that has been my problem all along.

there is a tiny bit of play. there seems to be some sorta rubber thingy that allows some movement when i looked at mine

yeah almost all columns have some type of connector. follow the column to the front. usually right near the firewall motor side is this junction thing.

you need a freaking donor Jeep carlos.

LMAO!! I sure do Rob. Seems like all WK's have a bit of play, so i am done with trying to figure this out and just swap out my LCA.
