over steering and road handling

drove my truck this past week on a 6 hr 300 mile plus trip noticed that I had to do a lot of steering corrections and over steering. I noticed this before on a long trip and sometimes driving. It doesn't tract straight. Truck 2005 crew cab XLT OEM stock no lifts or anything. Looking into a steering trac bar

SuperSteer Trac Bar

I think this is the one recommended by this company. Any one have any ideas or other suggestions?

Re: over steering and road handling

Are you thinking the rear axle is out? When was the last time you had the alignment checked?

no! I don't think there is a mechanical problem, just the steering and handling isn't up to par. 1/2 of this might be me and my driving.

Re: over steering and road handling

Aside from crappy roads, there could be a mechanical issue. I'd check the alignment first then look at a steering stabilizer setup. Additionally look at the front sway bar, an upgrade to the Helwig brand may help as well.
