Default More sloppy steering

So you can see the Lower Steering Column is rotating a fair bit before you see any kind of movement in the pitman arm.

How normal is that? That's a rebuilt gearbox, did I install a crappy one? Also, that clicking noise, is that the Lower Steering Column joint? It happened on every pull to the right. Could also be in one of the other linkages.

Edit:
Just found this: http://my.cardone.com/techdocs/PT%2027-0008.pdf

I guess I'll retest with the truck running.

Hrm, ran the truck and tested the steering, seemed more responsive but didn't have a helper so couldn't get eyes on the box / linkage.

If I get a chance next week I'll take another video for posterity.

I'm also going to install the cognito kit.
