Ima go down to JD and ask for Corn Head. I sure hope I don't get something I didn't expect, but sounds like the best solution. wink

How many tubes do you need to fill the box?

When I filled my steering box with cornhead grease, it took a few times, filling to the top each time. The grease takes a while to flow down into the nooks and crannies and work its way into the balls and ball nut. I checked it a day or so apart, and I think I added grease 3 times. I have not used up the first tube yet. I think I'll go out and check it again!

My truck had lots of issues with the steering when I got it first driving. Bad bump steer and even death wobble..... Steering box out of adjustment, no grease in steering box, worn loose wheel bearings, worn out tierod ends, excessive toe out, loose steering arm joint, and 10in wide rims on the front, and to top it off a tiny aftermarket steering wheel. What a disaster! When I had fixed all these issues, and then fitted a steering stabilizer, now my truck drives and steers great.

FYI, Bump steer is a suspension / steering geometry problem. If interested Google bump steer and you can see diagrams.
