Steering technical question..
#1
Any advice on how floppy a track rod should be ? I'm talking about the rod between the steering rack to the track rod end..

  My van has 170k under it's wheels and the rods are very sloppy but there is no signs of knocking or play, just very lose.
 My Multi has 120k under it's wheels and the rods are stiff to the point where they hold up their own weight if you disconnect the track rod end from the hub..

 Are they easy to change ? Have you changed some ?

  What do you recon ?

The tight ones may be dry.I ease the boot from the stem & spray m/cycle chain lube in them.Don't remove from the body,just ease away below the threaded stub.
