I have a similar situation with my 06. I thought I was going to R&R my outer tie-rod ends 1,2,3...15 minutes into the project I findout that I have a bad passenger side ball joints. So I was able to get all moog: ball joints for $220, L & R outer tie rods $230, axle seals and dust covers from ford $140 and a bunch of misc items like loctite and such $50. I'm definitely not a mechanic and I definitely am stuck doing this repair myself I was cruising right along until I got to the snap ring located behind the auto locking hub assembly. I can't get this off to save my life! I purchased snap ring pliers from Advanced Auto and Sears they both suck! My buddy and another mechanic say matco or snap on. The only problem with that is they buy off the truck....Maybe I'm just a dumbass Jarhead and the snap ring pliers requires finis....

Anyway, check the ball joints, the tie rod on the drag link?(The linkage to the pitman arm) steering box brackets, steering box. It's best if you, or person working on the truck, get under it while some one moves the steering wheel back and forth. Look at everything, it should all move smoothly.....anything that goes clickity clackity is most likely bad!

Snap ring anyone? Lil Help here!

ya if ur trying to buy snap on, just go to a shop and ask when the truck comes and meet him there! but ya to be hoenst, id have to see the truck, cause messed up steering could be a number of things. tell him to shake the tire both ways to make sure its not ball joints or bearings
