On top of what the others have said, check your sway bar bushings and links. These are easy, fairly inexpensive, and make a significant difference in the way a truck handles. Dual stabilizers will help, or at least a new one. The best way to check your front end is to jack it up, grab the tire on the top/bottom and try to wiggle it, if it wiggles your ball joints are worn. Then grab the front/back of the tire, try to wiggle it, if it wiggles that would indicate tie rod/pitman/steering link wear. You should grab a service manual and study the diagrams of the front end componants, it will make getting advice and asking questions easier.
