Grand Cherokee Steering Linkage Repair – EricTheCarGuy
I got some help from my friend and owner of this Jeep, Jason Matherson with the camera on this one. He brought me his Jeep a few months ago with a loose steering wheel and I showed him the trouble that was brewing. At first it was noisy like a rusty hinge, he tried to inject grease into the boots and that quieted things down for a bit but they still wore to the point you see here. I have to confess that this job took a lot longer than pictured as YT only allows me 10min of video (any longer is too long in my opinion anyway). I was almost done with the job when I ran out of gas for my torch and I had quite a bit of trouble putting one side back in, I ended up lubing the heck out of it. I hope this helps you get a better idea of how steering linkage works and how to fix it (with big hammers and torches). This work can be fun but if you don’t have the tools that I showed in this video forget it.
