It could be you need a new stabilizer shock but a loose track bar is most likely the root of it. I would get someone in the truck to work the steering wheel back and forth. Then get under truck and look at all the steering gear for any slop or movement in joints. Pay close attention to the track bar on both ends.
Good luck with it.
