steering problems

My 85 with 127000miles has had sloppy steering for years. Replaced parts and adjusted the box. Nothing seemed to help. Two years ago I spent a lot of money to have a GM cylinder installed which has been a big disappiontment. Has anybody looked at using a Chrysler cylinder in a Avanti? Thanks Bob

Sloppy steering is a major headache, what cylinder are you refering too?

THere is a rag joint on the steering column that can cause play, the center

pivot (bellcrank) is a common place, incorrect alignment, previous worn

tires from prior to fixing the play, and other areas.
