Kind of an urgent steering question! My wife let me buy a 94 Ford Bronco XLT 302 last year. Anyways since then, I’ve been hearing a clicking, spring stretching, almost crunching sound coming from within the steering wheel. (I don’t hear it from the engine bay or steering pump) Just inside the cab. Every now and then while turning it will feel like some phantom grabs the wheel firmly but loose enough to let you pull it through.
I am not sure what to check but this is where the urgency comes in. My wife won’t let me bring it to the beach for off roadding during the family beach trip if i can’t fix the steering issue… any help would be appreciated.
