  • 97 Laramie steers hard

    Got stuck yesterday, pulled out from rear bumper. Now my 97 Laramie W1500 steers like a 70 Ford takes 2 men & a small boy to to steer. Didn't hit anything, any ideas. It drove perfectly until this episode., It's not snow packed any place thank you

    Manual or power steering?

    Why is it that the inside of old truck cabs smell so good?

      Sorry , I didn't think there was standard steering anymore. Power
      But my wrench guy tells me its gear so he ordered the new part
      Thanks for your prompt reply
      I was one of the few guys who ordered manual steering in 74. Didn't steer to bad, last year of the big steering wheel, certainly not like a Ford w/ manual steering

        Oh yeah,
        Phord and Cheby of that day with 4x4 and manual steering were almost impossible to drive. What were they thinking? My Dad was going to order a Phord in '72 at the end of the model year but production lines were changing for the '73 model and they couldn't get one with power steering. He waited a few months and ordered a Power Wagon with power steering. The rest, as they say, is history.
