Might want to consider replacing the steering Rag joint while you are at it. It'll clean up any slop that exists between the steering wheel and input shaft on the steering gear. They get old/weak and flex a ton causing quite a bit of transition slop. Contributes the stereotype that they wander all over the road.

If the rag joint already has bolts/nuts its been replaced. if its got rivets then its original.

Order entire front end today. I have clunking while driving. It's gotta be them. So much play in them
i dont have the ability to redo the whole front end at home myself, which sucks
