2004 6.0 crazy steering issue
Ok so recently I replaced the power steering, so I am thinking this issue may be the steering box or track bar. my mechanic says everything else looks fine, I.e. ball joints, etc
the issue: I'm going into a turn and I obviously am turning the wheel. when I am trying to come back to center the wheel fights me pretty hard like it doesn't want to go back the way I want it to. after I return the wheel to center there is now a few inches of play and the wheel is constantly grabbing left, right, left right..in a very wobbly manner. if I drive i get on the brakes a bit it seems to help or if I just bear through it and drive straight, it'll eventually go back to pretty much normal (only like 1/2inch of play and no wobbly
left to right). but as soon as I go into another turn it'll fight and wobble back and forth.
I have It lifted 4" with 35s on 20s. i did an aftermarket steering stabilizer and like I said, already relaxed the power steering bc it was doing this before. it was great after that for about 3 weeks and now it is back
to doing it again. there is also some wine I think I hear too. maybe a new ps pump, box? thoughts?? thank you!
