steering troubles with 87 4runner
i recently traded my pickup for an 87 4runner, and as is the pattern with me, i got pretty screwed on the deal. the most mind boggling of the issues that i am trying to solve, is one with the steering. The cv shafts were both shot, and i was hoping the issue would go away when i replaced them, but that was not the case.
87 4runner, 22re motor, 32" tires, 3-4" lift
if the truck is in 2wd, it steers and turns fine. as soon as i lock the hubs, without even engaging the 4wd, it is near impossible to steer. I can see near the front on where the steering linkage seems to hit a metal bump. im drawing a blank on the name of the piece, but i think its there to stop the steering at full turn, if that makes sense.
i know this is pretty vague, but any suggestions would be appreciated.
