ive been messing with mine all day and am giving up.
if i already havent said it, took mine for a test drive a little bit ago and it did fine for 4 miles and then just decided to quickly pull to the left and then a little later right.
i changed calipers, i did the swap 2.5 yrs ago and used new poly track bar bushings but everything i've read does point to the pulling to the left and right stuff.
i starting to think steering box and/or powersteering pump. i'm just going to keep going like this, as much as i hate it, till something shows up or i find out more. i aint throwing money at the truck any more than i have to, i figure $150 for a pump, and who knows what for a steering box.
i wish some of the high mileage guys would tell us something cause the guys with new stuff are correcting big tires, lifts etc., not wore out parts.
ANYONE, PLEASE THROW A BONE.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE STEERING BOX STARTS TO GIVE OUT, WHAT ABOUT THE PS PUMP? my dad says he's never heard of a steering box going out.
i'll let you know if i find a fix, i'm not on a computer much, but i do get the emails from this site on my blackberry.
if your like me, you don't have $2000 to throw at new springs, boxes and pumps. i hate high dollar guessing.
