Steering and Clunk issue!!

hey guys so my 04 f350 dually has the typical clunk issue but also a steering issue since i did front brakes and rotors and front passenger hub assembly.

What happens when im steering either left or right it does not want to center back, i have to force the steering wheel back to center and than the truck still wants to pull to the side i just turned. this is not every time it is intermittent.

Also i have the clunk while turning and sometimes stopping somewhere in the front end. I completely removed the front sway bar as the bushings and endlinks were shot hoping that was it. but it still does it.

While i was doing the front passenger hub i turned the knuckle side to side and it was stiff. I did the ball joints about 6 months ago but i think i over tightened them. No axle u joints were done. When i spin the drivers side axle u joint it is free moving, passenger side sticks in someplaces.

Could someone please help me with this issue as i will be towing a 10 000 lb horse trailer in 2 weeks!

Truck has 208 000 km on it.

Thanks so much and sorry for the long post i did use the search button!

steering problems

My '03 was doing the same thing, just replaced upper and lower ball joints and left outer u-joint front axle shaft and had an alignment done. Just picked it up to day and runs fine so far. Hope this helps.
