RE: 99 dodge 4x4 cummins steering
No, it's not "OK". The dealer is retarded. Mine drove perfect for 90k. I have a 99 1500 and it just started wandering a little, actually it has a dead spot in the steering. I replaced the track bar with a Napa Spicer one and it seems worse now. There's gotta be something else wrong i.e. tie rods, pitman arm, drag link, etc. The only advice I can give is what I've read on here: get underneath and look at every component and check for play. I'm gonna do the same and will let you know.
