Check Your Steering Dampers

I know A-Bods don't use these, but many other vintage Mopars including even late model pickups do. They also go by the name "rag joints." It was enough of a scare and safety issue I thought I'd post it up for you to see:

I was concerned after I noticed an unusual amount of play in the steering when I got the New Yorker out for a little exercise for the first time in a couple months yesterday. It had been awhile since I'd driven it and just figured maybe it was getting time for a new steering box or maybe some front end work. What I found was absolutely petrifying. If this thing let's go going down the road you are just along for the crash.

Really dodged a bullet that time.
