Among other stuff mentioned....cracked frame rail where steering box mounts. Has happened to me in the past on a '97 F350 4x4. Really worn leaf spring and shackle bushings also can create problems.
These trucks are so heavy in the front that sometimes they wear grooves into the ball joints/rod ends that are not obvious until the truck is jacked up on the frame (not axle) to relieve the weight on the wheel/steering knuckle and the wheels are suspended.
