Solution To Dodge Ram Steering Problem
Dodge Rams made from 1994 to 2002 have a steering problem that causes the truck to wander. If not corrected it will develop into what is known as a death wobble. The problem is caused by a loose tracking bar, and replacing the tracking bar will only temporarily solve the problem.
  Luke’s Link has been solving Dodge and Ford steering problems for 26 years and has a rebuild kit that converts your track bar to a fully adjustable ball joint end. It is easy to install, and is guaranteed for the life of the truck. Luke’s Link also has bushing kits for 2003 to 2007 1/2 track bars. No need for a new bar. Luke’s Link will work on all 1 5/8-in. dia. bars. It will not work on 2 1/8-in. dia. bars but the company offers a lifetime adjustable track bar for these bars.  
  Luke’s Link has been safely repairing the front suspension on Dodge and Ford trucks for 27 years.
  One kit sells for $69; 4 or more kits are $58 each. Poly bushings axle end - $14 each. Dodge 03-07 track bar bushing kit - $36.
Note: This kit will only work on joints 1 5/8-in. and 1 3/4-in. Some after-market Tracbars have a joint diameter of 2-in., for which we offer a lifetime adjustable bar.

How to check for the tracking problem: With the wheels on the ground and pointed straight ahead, unlock steering wheel (do not start engine) and have someone jerk the steering wheel left and right while you observe the upper end of the tracking bar for up and down movement. Also check the bushing on the axle end of the track bar. (New bushings are available.) Then check the 4 tie rod ends, this kit will rebuild them (one kit per joint).
