Steering ????

Ok my truck in sig has had ball joints, all tie rods, and hubs replaced, and just had ford do an alinement. and it still is a pita to drive. it is still all over the road. I could see if it was pulling to one side but it goes left then right, and back and forth. Air is even in both tires. Any ideas on what i should look at next. truck got 125K on her with new 35-12.50-18's

i know that fords have vag steering to begin with but my is pretty bad. almost to the point that i might sell it and get a new truck. any help would be great. thansk

Steering box needs to be checked for play, they can be adjusted, but only if your very very careful.

Not sure, try searching it. How much play do you have in the wheel?

You have bigger tires on the truck and a lift kit. So unless the guy that aligned ytour truck was experienced it probly got aligned to factory specs... They wont work, your scrub radius is probly way of, as well as caster camber and toe.
