Question Rebuilt Steering Box Adjustment Question

Hello All,

I rebuilt my steering box a little bit ago and want to further tune out the extra play in the wheel. I'm removing the steering column again because the upper column bushing is rotating, throwing my spark and gas rods out of adjustments once set. I have a 31 and it doesn't require the 2 lil set screws that came with the bushing. Instead mine uses a locater pin system. I'm removing it to see if the pin sheared off.

Anyhow, my question is:

Are the steering box adjustment done with the column off or on the steering shaft?

I guess when I rebuilt the box, I thought I had it dialed in without the column mounted. It took several attempts, but I guess it's still a not right, about 2.5" movement.
