Thanks Bob,

No vertical movement is observed in any steering linkage joint - relay rod,
idler arm and tie rods.

However, when turning steering wheel through about 30 degrees of "free play"
there is no movement of wheels or of steering arm from box either.

That seems to look like the steering box is needing attention, hopefully
just lash ?

I did notice wet oil on lower end of steering box shaft though, which is not
good, I'm thinking ?

The steering arm from box looks wet, and has fresh oil on end of its shaft :
