When I drive my truck you have to constantly put in steering inputs to the steering wheel. The truck has to be constantly steered (kinda like point and shoot). When you go around a corner the steering does not come back to neutral and you have to physically turn the steering wheel to straight. I have had the upper/lower ball joints replaced, front end alignment and checked the u-joint in the steering column under the dash, it is fine. The power steering seems to work fine and there is no pump noise. It does this in 2wd or 4wd. Could it be the front axle shaft u-joints? Could it be??? Thank you for any and all help.
recheck your caster....
An old Ford will do this- the steering was never made to be tight, and just gets looser as time goes on- especially a 4x4- if it bothers you, you might need to get a car-
Suspect a problem with the rack and pinion. The steering wheel should return to neutral when turning a corner. Nothing mechanical to explain here, just physics. When the wheels are turned the vehicle naturally wants to to straighten itself out when in motion. The rack may be binding.
Check pitman arm, replace
