slight oversteer when turning left at high speed

I thought this issue was from the tires so i replaced all shocks, tires, steering damper and it still has this problem. Not a big thing it is just a slight oversteer and only at 55+. Dealers all say there is nothing wrong? any ideas? 2007 cc 6.0

When you say oversteer you mean it feels like it wants to spin out? Check your swaybar bushings, that's what they do. Better yet make sure your truck still has the swaybars if you bought it used. Some people on here have removed them, not a good idea.

thanks. I bought the truck new and it has 63k on it.
i guess kinda like u describe. at speed when you start turning like on a freway curve it kinda wants to turn to much on its own so you have to compensate. No one notices it but me. I guess i need to get a good front end specialist behind the wheel at 65mph then maybe. The truch did bump into a freeway barrier at less then two miles an hour because of ice a year ago. Bent the front bumper but the shop said the front end was perfect. Bushings huh? i will go look

If you grab the swaybar try to move it side to side, it should not move. If it does, the bushings are toast.

I've pulled and pryed on everything under there and it is rock solid. Something must have been bent when i hit that barracade and bent my bumper. I thank you for the help
Happy Ney Year!!
