I've had some play in my front end for some time. Here lately it's getting worse to the point it felt like it was skipping over a gear in the gearbox and take off sharply in the other direction. Well after trying to find a gearbox for the truck this week (no luck at any parts stores or ford dealers) I finally found 1 at a salvage yard. The doner truck was a 07 same as mine with only 7k on it.. Got the gearbox switched over, and now pretty much same problem.. Front end feels tighter, but even at low speeds I can let go of the steering wheel and it will go back and forth on it's own from left to right.. I'm at a loss... Power steering pump? contaminated oil? Bad gearbox? Not sure where to go from here so any and all help would surely be appreciated..

Thanks,
Flatbedin
