How much slop should be expected in the steering linkage? I seem to have quite a bit of slop. Is there a way to tighten it up

Hey dave there is a nut behind the steering wheel cover that you can snug up a bit.If you look in between the steering column or shaft you will see a wave washer or shim.You can tighten the nut up some without making it steer to stiff.Behind the steering wheel there are torque screws that you can take out to remove steering wheel cover to access the nut i am talking about.

Chris,

That nut just holds the wheel to a splined shaft. The steering wheel itself has no slop on the shaft since it is held on rigidly by splines. The problem must lie further down the line. I'll do some exploring.

Ya that would have my attention on a brand new ride like that. I will check mine again today for any extra play in the steering and report back.

I have heard 6 mnth to 2 yr warranty on the 09's. I should probably ask about that also.

I have the 2 year warranty, and I can definitely locate the slop to the steering box where the steering shaft meets the tie rods. Maybe this is normal for an off-road machine? It just feels weird.

I checked with my Prowler dealer and he checked the brand new models for steering slop. They have about 1 inch of left-right looseness. Mine has about an inch and a half, so that's probably about normal for having about 250 miles on it.
