THOR #15377
Steering Wheel

When I first purchase by 2018 Hurricane in 2018, I told the dealer that the steering wheel was about 20 degrees from be true. I battled with the dealer for two years before Thor said to take it to an large truck service center. They made the correction in a few hours. Any one else had this problem?

I donít know if the new chassis has the same design, but the older F53 was unusual in that only one tie rod end is adjustable. Makes it impossible to adjust the steering wheel in the ďusualĒ manner. The official Ford procedure requires removing the steering box and shimming it sideways. Even my Ford truck center wouldnít do it on mine. Fortunately however, itís a simple DIY job to disconnect the steering column from the box, center the wheel and reattach it. After youíve done it once its about a 5 minute job. I have NO idea why that isnít a Ford procedure because itís simple and effective. It is a fairly course adjustment because itís a splined shaft and I think each spline is 10 degrees. Still, that will get you within 5 degrees of center one way or the other and that was close enough for me.
