Default Steering slack.

I have used the "search" with no avail. I have slack in my steering and is wondering if there are some part numbers associated with just replacing the bushings itself or do I need to replace the tie rod and steering connecting rods?

2005 EZGO TXT gasser - 6" lift All sports I believe

I can hold one tire and move the other about 1-1.5 inch. The slack seems to be in the bushing and maybe the steering assembly.

Which wheel are you holding? If you hold the passenger wheel and turn the steering wheel back and forth, is there slop there?

Yes sir, but you can see the movement at the bushings also.

Sure is allot of movement, hard to believe the bushings are worn that much on a 2005, wonder if who ever put the drop spindles on put the bushings back in.

I will take some better images tonight and post tomorrow.
Any other test I can do to eliminate it being the steering assembly?
thanks

All I can think of other than wheel bearings or loose lug nuts.
