Question Pic request

I need a favor, could someone snap a pic of the orientation of the steering shaft with the wheels pointed straight ahead?

Huh? I don't think it matters. Get the arm on the box dead straight, allign the truck so everything is happy and then pull the steering wheel and put it on straight.

If you are worried about lining up the steering arm, lie underneath it and look up. You'll see it is "keyed". You should have a gun sight view of this from below and it's clear when the arm is centered.

You are assuming they had only one way to line it up. That would be a PITA to do. It would be like making all the bolt heads line up. Heck, they cannot even get the body panels to line up.

after looking at it, im pretty sure the NAS trucks with their funny collapsable shaft benefit from not having the fat part closest to the exhaust manifold when the wheel is dead center, where it would stay most of the time

phil your pics are ok but take on for me from a little farther out
