Now the wheel jerks or pulls back and forth when on sweeping turns or long curves. looking for some advice i still have warranty and want it fixed but they can find it???? it almost feels like its in 4x4 and im making sharp turn

I have in the shop right now. The thing just jerks left and right hard to keep on the road. They are replacing the steering box on mine as well. Doesnt sound like it is going to fix it.

Have them check the ends of the front steering stabalizer for wear or loose fit. I read on here that is a possible cause as well. Ill keep you posted

Hey guys Im having the same problem with the steering but i have 37" tires so do you think they will blame it on the oversize tires and not cover it under warranty?? I also i have 53k miles on mine.

Yeah I had ford rep come look at mine and they tried to not warranty it because I have 1 size over stock 18". I had to call and explain that alot of the f350 come with 20" from factory. I do believe they may try to screw with you.
