It depends on the width of the tires if ther are considerably wider then the stock tires that you replaced then steering stabilizers will help you out

Do not start it brake fluid in the power steering. Will destroy the seal in the whole unit if you have started it you will need to take the return line off at the pump and flush it asap you can use trans fluid it has cleaner in it

Reasons for "play" in a steering wheel. I have a 1998 dodge ram 1500 club cab and can turn my wheel almost 2" without the wheels turning. I had it looked at from a local garage and they found a broken sway...


Could be more worn steering parts such as the pitman or idler arm. IIRC, the 98 Ram has a steering gear box, and not rack and pinion steering like newer models.

If the issue is not up front under the hood, you could also have a worn intermediate (sometimes called a sector shaft) . This shaft goes between the steering column and the gear box or rack and pinion.

Serious understeer with 96 Dodge Ram 3500 Dually


Are the tie rod ends tight? Is the trac bar (frame end) tight? The steering boxes on these trucks require more input that a 1/2 ton truck or a car. How is the alignment? The caster on these should be set to about 5 degrees, the original specs allow a lot of wandering.
