93 ezgo steering problems


New Member
Hello all, this is my first post on here so bear with me. I have a 93 ezgo gas cart that I keep on my dad's farm. Well, last time out there I noticed that the steering doesn't work at all, the wheel seems like it is stripped. I removed the wheel and checked the spline shaft from the steering column to the wheel, and it looks good. I need some advice on what to check next, steering box? The front end component look like they are decent shape, but I can't really check for slop if I can't turn the wheel. Also, the steering had quite a bit of free play in it when we bought it. Thanks in advance.

its very common for the rack to strip out, pull the box apart and check for wore bushings and most likely replace the rack.

nubs nailed it! those racks are famous for stripping out, make sure u check the little u-joint inside of the steering shaft, those tend to get very sloppy also.

I finally pulled the box apart and it looks like the redduction gear is bad. Should I replace the gear at the end of the steering shaft as well? Also, does that reduction gear stay in place with the centering pin, or does it have a clip to hold it in place?
