    I'm having steering issues. Anyone know what it could be?

    Steering issues generally begin with the steering clutches and brakes. More details are needed.

    Thank you for answering! I jacked it up and one track spends faster than the other. Everything worked but didn't have a left brake

    No brake justifies opening up that steering clutch and smart money would service the other clutch and brake at the same time. One side moving faster than the other indicates a dragging brake on the slow side.
