I've noticed in our 03 V8 4Runner that the steering has recently felt a bit loose. We noticed it especially on a gravel road while turning into rough parking spot in the woods. I turned into this sort of deep gulch as I pulled in to park - the gulch was just for a moment, then the road was fine. But that maybe was the last straw for it and after that I could basically drive straight while the wheel could be off of level - which is definitely not how it used to drive. Our truck is getting up there in age - were are at 251K (highway) miles on it. We had it looked at and the wheel bearing had something to do with it. Is that right?

However, the steering isn't much better. Do I need to exchange another quart, or should I be checking other things.
I have a 2005 SR5 V6 with 144,000 miles. Yours with 260,000 is huge. My steering is perfect and I changed PSF like you have. Hope yours is not a leak somewhere.

Mine PSF has always looked clear, but things wear out. PSP could be failing. Any squeels? Does it leak any fluid?

Youtube video shows a few tips

Flat spot on spline needs to line up with new joint (old clamp) so bolt can pass through. Also part of old joint (the clamp) may need to be reused.

I have never done this I am just saying the video is probably worth watching.

Replaced my steering shaft on the weekend. A pain to get the lower part off the rack but now no intermittent hard steering and the looseness is gone too. That u-joint was toast.
