What did dodge do? Put a tighter ratio in the steering box, and made the problem way worse.I talked to people that said theirs doesn't do it,so I drive them to discover they just dont notice it anymore.
A guy I sub out to and he subs out to me has an 07 6.7 2500 and he complains about that exact steering issue. My truck always recenters itself about 75%. I know the front end in the solid axle(monobeam seems to be the trendy name) have archaic, simple steering componentry. Why try to reinvent the wheel?

2000 F250 4x4 cc/sb. 6" w/37's and some other stuff.
