6.7L Steering?

Hey guys,
Just got my 2011 F350. I've got 1,000 miles on it and I've noticed that the steering has already loosened up quite a bit. I find it hard to believe. I'm taking it to ford next week to get it looked at. I was just curious if anyone else ran into this problem???

my dad and i both have 2011 250s, and we both had the problem. I made the switch from a dodge so at first i thought it was just the different lock to lock ratio but it started walking real bad on certain bumps. The old man said his 07 before that had the same problem. We had the dealer install dual steering stabilizers in addition to the stock stabilizer and havent seen a problem since.

I threw a redhead on mine and the problem has not gone away. I honestly dont think the redhead box is worth the money. Just a thought from someone who has one. I still have not figured out why my steering sucks.
