Default H2 Sloppy Steering

I paid a shop to replace the ball joints, control arms and bushings on a 2006 H2 and the steering feels sloppy. Like a slow turn in 4 wheel drive low but it's not. The steering just seems off to the point I don't want to drive long distances. Any deviation in the road results in a lot of steering corrections and I will go over a speed bump with the steering wheel at 90 degrees until the car straightens out. The shop says their is nothing wrong. Any suggestions?

First I would get a new shop if they think that nothing is wrong.

It could be a number of things:

gearbox, tie rod ends, both inner and outer, pitman arm, idler arm, steering shaft etc.

MOVED this for you to the correct section for H2 questions.

Note the Drivetrain Area where it says: "This section is an archive of older posts, please post new questions in the specific model section. Thank you!"

Welcome to HF and good luck.

I've replaced everything on my truck too. I just bit the bullet and ordered a new steering box and pitman arm. I have slop between the steering linkage and the box itself, in other words I can move my steering wheel without moving the pitman arm.

I'll let you know how it turns out, not due to arrive until 4/27

I've done this to mine, it didn't make much difference. DO NOT over tighten the allen screw!
