When making right turns and returning the steering wheel back to center, the steering locks up and sticks. If I wiggle the wheel slightly to the right and back to the left, the lock up goes away allowing me to return to center.
I just replaced upper and lower ball joints because they were shot. Took the truck for a test drive last night and the steering problem still exists.
If your truck is 4wd, try greasing your front u-joints, the only greasable joints in the whole truck(why)?? I had same prob, greased joints and it helped, but I think I let them get to far as it still does it once in a while
Just picked the truck up from dealer diagnostics. They said the steering gear box was bad. Of course not under any warranty. Dealer wants $655 to replace it. $179 from AutoZone and me under the truck again tonight will take care of it. Thanks for the reply.
What else should I be expecting to fail before 80K miles?
