Anyone have to remove steering box? Loud pop noise at one section of turn. Positive it is in the steering box. New tie rods, crossover, etc., seems like a major pain in the ass according to manual.

Is it continuous during driving ?

What oil or grease is in the box?

The pop is not continuous when driving, only turning wheel when stopped at a certain spot on turn.

Standard gear lube for marine lower unit. Just topped off with that. Making pop long before lube was added

Thanks for your advice!!
