Tightening Steering

My truck's steering has never been rock solid and after adding larger tires it's evn worse.

Any pot hole or rough road tends to move the steering wheel in your hands.

Can anything be done and is this inherent to our trucks?

I had the same thing. changed out factory steering damper.Had 65,000 on it and was toast. then added dual steering stabilizers, worked perfectly, huge difference! 112,000 now, no problems since

The dampner will help but make sure that all of you rfront end components are not worn. Look at the upper and lower ball joints along with the pass side lower tie rod end.

new/upgraded steering stabilizer will help a lot. But like Zika said, check ball joints and steering components such as the Tierod sleeve, I've had the threads strip out on me before
