To be honest it is the whole steering chain that has slop in it not just the wheels. For Euro trucks the first step is moving the servo to the front. Then replace the tamiya o ring style links with 4.8mm ball sockets ( they still have some flex though) or captive olive items. Then move on the the axles. Ideally you need the carson cranked steering bar AND the replacement stub axles. I am told that the stub axles are currently out of stock with carson though.

The alternative is to replace the axle with a better one.

What's the cost on a replacement axle, if I replace the axle can I leave servo where it is? Cheers

Axle is about £45 but this one also has angled king pin so is better from that point of view. It also has options on servo rod position etc. You will still have to move the servo to get rid of the slop in the transfer arm.
