'04 superduty steering sway

does anyone with a '03 or newer superduty have any problems with the steering swaying in the lane from side to side? If I let go of the steering wheel it will stay in the lane with no problems for 1/8-1/4 mile but soon any the slightest imput and it wanders from side to side. The tires are wearing good and it does'nt pull to one side. I've changed the steering stabilizer with no help and Ford has no idea as to what to do? It's all stock ( 4wd) with stock size tires and the inflation is correct and it's driving me nuts ! Any ideas is greatly appreciated

I have an 04 four wheel drive with exactly the same symtoms as yours. I just put on new tires and stabilizer but the steering is still loose. Raised the front tire pressure to 66 lbs. which helped slightly but didn't fix the problem.
