Sportram,

I have the similar problem, and Im thinking its my steering shaft. I was thinking of swapping mine out for a Borgeson aftermarket steering shaft. Does anyone out there have one of these installed on their trucks???

have you looked at your bushings on the control arms. its a long shot, but maybe at the higher speeds its compressing the bushing which is making the axle turn that way.

Mine does that too. I can't figure it out. I think it may be because my steering box is week or something. Who knows. Thats why I want to get a steering stabilizer.

I dont think a steering stabalizer is goin to help that problem but you never know. correct me if im wrong but im pretty sure all they do is let you have better control when driving over rough terrain and i also heard that your tires in the front wear a lot better.

in the one section of dodgeram.org, there is a tech who gives different specs for aligning the track then what the shop might use. he says that if the caster isnt the same and with a certain spec (3-4 degrees) that it will pull and drive oddly, even the tech sets it to spec. mine does the same thing, im getting ready to paint the frame and axles blue metallic, so im going to have to redo the alignment and ill try those specs.
