ok i took it for the first little drive and we have a few issues
the rear axle needs new bearings internally and pinion bearings at a minimum as it whines like a piggy

and the steering is so vague its dangerous
the play appears to be in the steering box

would i be better finding a new rear axle (the one that is on the truck is a 5 stud 68 impala)
and can i do anything with the steering box

any ideas on this please

thanks
