Try tightening the nut at bottom of stem. Take cotter pin out, put loctite on threads and reinstall w/ ~ 80ft/lb
mine came loose at the bottom too. My spacers cause more strain on the steering. Tightened it up and its fine now.
Check all your tie rod ends, I had to replace mine a couple months ago.
yeah the nut on my steering stem came loose as well. got it tightened up and solved the problem.
I had a similar problem, turned out my tie rod was loose. Dealer fixed it and replaced the Mudlites since it had eaten a bunch of tread off of them.
