Brad, check the flexible joints (TRF part number 150696). If dry or cracked-
replace them. Safety and handling are the reasons. If you do replace them
also replace the horn grounding straps that go through them and get new bolts,
nuts and LOCKING WIRES. I did this on mine about three years ago.
Also check the rubber bellows at the ends of the steering rack. If cracked or
dry replace. Cheers.
