Steering kickback/off center left/off center right
94 f250Hd 7.3***
Shes rebuilt and on the road now I have a steering issue.
It's of center to the left now, I had an alignment on a trip out of state and they didn't center the wheel. So I know that needs done. But...
On highway... At 11 o'clock, it's straight. Then if I make a right turn and bring the steering wheel back to "center" it adjusts itself and center is now 12 o'clock. So I then fight it back (easily not a ton of resistance) to 11 I clock position and it's almost like it aligns itself and while driving, the truck steering seems to slide back to the 11 oclock position being center again. So now I'm driving straight an then it pulls to the right side (very quickly) and I have to fight it to the left for 100 yards. After a short time there no fight again. And we are back to easy driving.
This happens everytime after I'm going straight for a long period and then have to make a turn. Where do I even start? Can't find anyone with this issue?
Am I describing this right? I already know I need a ball joint in drivers side. And alignment but don't want to pay for alignment only to have to fix something and get it realigned.
Feels like something is loose and truck just slides to the right, I fight it back to slide left and we are straight again. Please help! Thanks in advance, nobody has ever let me done here.
