fords famous power steering pump design its common if you replace the pump with a rebuilt one there is a paper with the new pump that warns you of this noise for about 500 miles after installing hope this helps
try removing the steering wheel cover and spray WD40 down the shaft -- also - take down the vin number - call the dealer and ask about recalls - some items will remain for the life of the car - till fixed or replaced
A Dodge Dakota with 4-wheel steer? Do you happen to mean 4-wheel drive?
If so, you should not operate the vehicle in 4-wheel drive when you are traveling on a hard, high-traction surface. When in 4x4, the transfer case connects the front and rear axles, and does not allow for differentiation of wheel speeds necessary when turning. This is compensated for when driving over low-traction terrain because the tires slip easier.
Basically, the jerking, bucking and locking of the truck is due to the binding. This will eventually lead to damage in the driveline. If the roadway isn't covered in snow, there is no need for the 4 wheel drive to be engaged.
sounds like either the camber or caster is off on your alignment or possable you got your steering gear box adjustment too tight .. this will cause it to not return to center.. thanks and holler if you have more..
I would recommend a salvage yard but be careful if there is a full charge in the air bag canister it could go off but to answer your question it is not hard to do I would unplug the plugs on the steering column below for safety before I start prying and there should be some screws behind the steering wheel
