Replacing stock steering damper on an '06 250

I installed new tires on my 06 250 4x4, one width size up from stock with a pretty agressive tread. I'm now getting an intermittent vibration in the steerring wheel. The truck only has 26k miles on it. I'd like to replace the steering damper. I have a Haynes book but it says nothing about this. I have read that others had to heat up the parts to get the OEM damper out. Is it that difficult? Also, who makes a direct replacement for the OEM? Any info for me?

Nope no heat needed unless something is really seized up. Just a pickle fork and a hammer will do it.

As far as direct replacements seeTHIS for some ideas.

Thanks, I'm gonna call Top Gun Customz later and figure out what they think is the best option. I'll be laying in my driveway doing the work. The easier the better.
