 Description of the problemDodge/ram have been having this problem for years and it has become the "normal" for their trucks, but this the slack in the steering column is hardly acceptable. I have to constantly drive with my steering at 10 o'clock to drive straight (even after alignments) and quickly adjust 3-4 inches to adjust right if it suddenly starts pulling the other way. I have to constantly get my steering aligned as the left front tire's toe goes out every 6-9 months causing the truck to pull right very hard when braking. It is a constant "high-alert" status to drive because the slightest wind change, pavement texture, or even motorcycle passing is enough to make the steering shift from pulling right to pulling left. This throws me into the left lane sometimes, which puts my life and those around me at risk. This is a fairly new truck and was doing it when i bought it. I though nothing of it as it was still in warranty bit several ram dealerships in multiple states have said they couldn't find anything and that it is "normal." i find that chrysler is negligent to their customers and put people's lives on the line. I have a 2017 ram 1500 for my company work truck and it does the exact same thing, but pulls the opposite direction. It only has 5000 miles when it started developing slack in the steering. Chrysler refuses to spend the extra . 02 cents per vehicle to put a reliable steering vibration damper in the steering column. The more i research, the more i find that this has been going on for decades across multiple generations of ram trucks. Chrysler needs to be put out of business for this reckless disregard for the people that drive their trucks. From what i have researched, about 50% of their trucks develop this problem. Problem is noticeable while stationary, and driving at all speeds. Worse at highway speeds and while pulling loads.
