Sloppy Steering Syndrome - Problems & Solutions
If your steering feels loose and vague on your classic Cougar (or Mustang, or other old Ford / Lincoln / Mercury), you need to watch this video. During our annual open house event, we invited several Cougar owners to put their car on the lift and let us wiggle things around to diagnose loose steering. Some unrestored cars needed attention in several areas, whereas others were suffering from one or two factors that were overlooked during restoration. Armed with the knowledge you'll gain from this video, there's no reason your steering can't be made tighter and more precise. All the applicable parts mentioned in this video can be found on our website in these two categories: Steering parts: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/steering.html Suspension parts: http://www2.cougarpartscatalog.com/suspension.html

Purchased from Weber & Cooper Lincoln/Mercury in late 1967. I purchased the car in 1988 and drove it for a few years. Full restoration started in 1994. Now it isa weekend and summer day recreational driver. This video was taken using a digital still camera so the quality is not as good as I had hoped for.
