NIDE9 Posted February 8, 2018 Share Posted February 8, 2018 He All. First off I hope I am posting this in the correct place. Second, I Love my New to me Mack! I had a Dot inspection done at a local shop today. All went well except the tech said I needed to replace Drag link needs replaced and a few small exhaust leaks. He also said I had too Much play in my slip joint on the steering column. All these things were marked and need repaired for DOT. My Question is Regarding the slip joint. There is movement in the shaft due to the length it has to span to reach the u joints closer to the gear box. Is there supposed to be some sort of support for this shaft inside of the fire wall. I have a rubber boot on the outside of firewall only. Does this make sense? The truck is a 1989 superliner with an e9. I am going to replace the u joints, but Not Sure about this slip joint. Any help would be Great. BTW the shop has a good reputation, but the Guy doing the inspection was a bit younger than My truck. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
