Default VERY loose steering on an 89 G20 Help

The steering on my G20 is horrible, and slightly terrifying on the highway. It moves from 11-1 o'clock and still goes straight. I know people have told me about the suggestomatic steering on these but I'm hoping there's a solution to this. Everything underneath seems tight.

Thx in advance!

I heard there is some srew underneath that you can turn just a little and it makes a huge difference. Anyone heard of this?

Yes, but first I would jack up the front end and with your hands at 12 and 6 o'clock see if you have play in the wheels (possible bad ball joints) . Then take off the wheels. Have someone turn the steering wheel from one side to another (and back) while you examine the front end parts for play. Then adjust the steering gear box (while wheels back on and steering wheel back at center and still jacked up, Turn the nut in the front on the gear box loose and hold. Tighten down the inner threaded bolt with a 3/16 allen wrench, turn the inner bolt about 1/4 turn to the right. Now tighten up the outer bolt. May help may not. Might need new gear box! is offline
