So this last Friday i was driving down a dirt road around 35 or 40 miles an hour when my truck started veering off to the right. I tried to correct by turning the wheel left but found that it did absolutley nothing and there was no resistance when i turned the wheel, as quick as i realized this my truck made an abrupt right turn into a tree line 8 feet off the road. Its in the shop now getting estimated and hopefully fixed. I had a ranch hand grill guard which took a lot of the abuse but still didnt save everything. Its goin to atleast need a new right front fender, hood, radiator core support, new front tires and new fornt end parts. After i got my senses back after the wreck i found the hole drag link assembly in the ditch. Any one ever heard of something like this happening or care to speculate on what may have caused this. The day before this happened my father and i drove it 150 miles and picked up 1500 lbs of steel. i let my dad drive the whole trip since he drives an old 81 3/4 ton pickup i thought he might like the feel. The funny thing is he kept saying that it wandered on the road about as much as his truck does. now i didnt think it was that bad until i drove it home that night and realized it did wander something fierce. I was going to have it aligned on the following monday but it didnt hold out that long. Any ideas?? Oh yeah and i forgot, the frame needs to be untweaked. Hopefully its not to bad.
