Thank you .  So you're saying worm gear can be removed from shaft and put on another . If that is case with gear sector shaft split and column cut near bottom  maybe able to ship in Flat rate box . Talking a C18358 from Q ,U's .
  I was under impression on some units it was welded and had build in bearing race .

Was able to correct about 75 percent of my slack in wheel . Base a  you-tube of adjusting . I disconnected the drag link from pitman . This made it much easier to feel the slack and adjustment . I next loosen backwards order all adjustment and cycled wheel until i could feel the go , no-go . The thrust worm adjustment was made lose enough to see column move up and down the slightest , I then snugged and cycled and redid until i could easily feel the correct adjustment . This was my problem area and needed over a full turn in . I then moved to pitman shaft adjustment . Make sure side plate of third adjust was tight before starting . and adjusted this . Then the last, worm engagement to tooth gear ,was set . I noted lack of it being tighter in mid point . Conclusion over worn parts . I did notice it being very snug and max left /right of box . However . Did not realize that front end did not need full stroke of box , to achieve turning range . So maybe able to get more on third adjustment . All this greatly improved steering from 4-1/2" to about 1" play .
  Hope this help others . Was able to track down about six other Mopars that use my parts . Have a couple on stand-by .  Thanks .

I do not think so . I just finished rebuilding rusted rear springs and  feel with out the rigid back it had a little more slop in steering . And felt it was time to teak . Well after touching it it seems worst . .

Did anyone ever loosen up bolt and column nut . Does shaft then move freely . Maybe i have to remove Clum switch and other parts first ?
    I wanted to back off until loosened and bring up as book describes .
