Do you have play in the steering wheel? I did and Just fixed mine as it did the same. There is a nut 16mm on top of the steering gear box with a 3/16 allen screw in the center. Loosen the nut and snug the allen screw...depending on how much wear is in the gears it could be 1/2 turn, a full turn or more. snug it and start the truck and wiggle the steering wheel, when all the play is gone you got it, then just tighten the nut back and youre done. I have almost 275K on my truck so I had alot of adjustments to do, Trucker86 is doing his as well.
