Alright so my buddy checked the front end out... he said it was still tight.
I feel something under my foot at times, could that be the front sway bar bushings?
Also, I noticed today, when i intiially leave after starting the truck, the lights dim, but everything dims, even the odometer light. When it happens there is a weird sound like a small bump almost and then the lights dim simulataneously. That makes me thing it could be the steering shaft wearing out because it would cause the power steering pump to work harder, creating more draw on the system, right? And like I said, the wheel has a funky sensation at times and the rpms change and patman backed up what I thought: more draw on the system since the power steering system has to work harder to turn the truck. Thoughts?
