G'day - owner of 753 - you should look at the threads on adjusting the steering controls - you have to go through that process to correctly adjust them. Seems arduous but the result is steering which is true and very little or no creep. You could have lots of wear in the bushes and connecting rods as well. Cable ties are used to restrain the spring for pulling it out and putting it back in. I just took mine out as it was and compressed it in a vice and used three cable ties to restrain it when putting it back in. There is much more detailed information and pictures in other threads about Bobcats which I am sure will be a better help than these few words. Post some pictures of your mechanism under the seat and I am certain better minds than mine will give you lots of good advices, good luck, MX45.
