    The worm in a steering box will naturally show most wear in the position where the steering is straight ahead, because for the most part we drive in a straight line and make slight corrections. If you over tighten the worm and peg the steering will bind. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_infoThere is a company that independent auto repair shops "buy" their information from that offer a very reasonable service to do it yourselvers. You get a one year subscription to year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... great quality information same as the professionals have ,much better than generic workshop manuals from parts stores, much cheaper than the factory manual. http://bit.ly/alldata_repair_manuals or try http://bit.ly/mitchell_repair_manuals_online and get an online repair manual subscription. You may find the information you are looking for on one of these websites.
