        Sounds like a bad box... where are you located?

          Could be the jamb nut has loosened on top of the box . Or possibly severe wear. If not loosen , unthread the jamb nut a bit and tighten up the stud and back it off a touch and tighten the jamb nut. This should be on top (opposite end of where your splines are for the pitman arm ). The way it works is kind of like the backlash in the differential . And actually check all the joints from the box up to colum as well , could be a whooped rag joint.

            Like Greg said for tightening the gear box. But that normally occurs from a long used gearbox with severe wear.

            Since you said CJ, make sure your shackles are tight firm against the tubes inside the bushings. Example I leave mine a little loose and removed the metal tubes so I get better articulation off road and this can be seen when I'm sitting at flat and turn wheel left or right the whole body will move up to 6" in either direction before the shackles tighten up and then the tires turn. This effect does make it road travel interesting that requires lots of back n forth wheel movement to maintain straight travel. But depends on where the priorities lie to where the loosy or tighty is needed. For now it just holds up a tarp lol
