Default to much sway? pulling in steering wheel

Hey guys,

My 2010 ram feels as if it sways to much when on the highway, it seems like im constantly having to correct it to stay in the lane. Also i seem to get a lot of feed back into the steering wheel (expecially on a dirt road)
Im new to the dodge world and im not used to these trucks yet. I was guessing possibly the leveling kit along with the 305-55-20 nitto tires had some to do with it? Also does anyone have a steering stabilizer on their 1500? i have done some research and havent found anything out.

You might need a wheel alignment again man. One thing to consider as far as steering input is having your caster adjusted because it's caster that is important to steering feel and high-speed stability. Having your negative camber adjusted more towards the max spec can also aid in steering sensitivity as well. If you're using the Bils 5100's, and you have them maxed out, some have complained about ride being bouncy as well. If you're running spacers then your low profile tires are more to blame for stiffer ride.
