have you checked your steering stabilizer? I just replaced mine, made the steering feel tighter w/ a lot less feedback from the 37's. I have an 09' F350 w/a 4.5" lift. What are you runnin'?

Have you tried adjusting your steering box? Kind of a PITA because the left CAC tube needs to come out, but you'd be surprised the amount of wear big meats put on the steering box.

I put a 4" 4-link Skyjacker lift on my truck about 2 yrs ago. I had about 10 degree play in the steering wheel. None of the steering componets were changed other than pitman arm and track bar bracket. I installed dual steering stabs, and nothing changed. Still had about 10 degree play in steering wheel. I have since installed 8.5" 4-link Skyjacker lift and still the same. The thing is that gets me, I put the same 4" 4-link Skyjacker on my Father in Law's 2010 6.4L F250 and his steering is as tight as can be.

What gives????
