Turn the truck off, leave it in gear/park, put the e-brake on and crawl under the front end. Have a buddy shake the wheel back and forth fairly hard and watch all the tie rod and link ends. Should be pretty obvious what's wrong.

See message below, the Red-Head box gets a lot of high regards around Ford owners it seems------


We do have that gearbox in stock and the price is $346 exchange plus $175 on the core until we get yours back. Ours come adjusted and on center- if you feel that there is any problem please do not adjust on the gear, and just call us.

Thanks,
