If it had the steering would be truely awful, we got asked to sort out a tractor that had been run with a loader on that had done exactly what was described above

Excessive steering force could cause the bearing to collapse yes. There's a huge amount of pressure on those bushings due to the mechanical (dis)advantage the shaft has.

Part 6.786 is suspect at this time. I need to clean all the grease out and see if I can get to see down in the bottom- likely not, so it'll probably be a case of trying to get the pitman arm off the splines (that'll be fun, the nut is bigger than any tool I have, by quite a margin).

First step would be to get it cleaned up and get the proper grease/oil in there.

The difference in the steering box in the Lada just dry Vs liked is startling.

Hopefully this is more interested in retaining the lubricant. Incontinent steering boxes are a standard feature on most Ladas...

No, there is significantly more wiggle in the twist than there should be.
