help on front end on f350 4wd steering

i just bought a 97 f350 4wd. i noticed it steered alittle funny compared to my 97 2wd dually. after looking it over the panhard bar behind axle needs bushings. no big deal. but as we were turning the wheels back and forth the drag link and tie rods are rotating front to back before it steers. all steering tie rods and pitman joints are tight. could something be bent causing this? anyone ever seen this thanks

Does the truck have a lift? What you can do is rotate one tie rod forward and the other one back. It won't get rid of it completely but it will help.

both of mine do the same thing, its annoying especially the noise they make. I'm told they make a bushing that goes between the knuckle and the tie rod end that limits the movement...
