Question about 1998 Chevrolet K1500
When making a right hand gradual turn, the steering wheel will all of the sudden pull to the right even further. This occurs at slow speed and highway speeds. Its almost as if someone is pulling the steering wheel further than what you intended. I don't notice any noises coming from the engine compartment when it does this. The only other thing is the fact that when I slow down to stop at the stop sign, my front end begins to bounce or vibrate as the truck slows. I recently replaced both front wheel hub assemblies but this was done because the wheel hubs went bad and had a great deal of play in them. Any help would be much appreciated
There is a unit in the steering column called a steering speed sensor. Replace it and all is well. I had to do it on my 1998 Chevy at 140,000 miles and all is good. Have since done it on another 1500 and it corrected its problem too.

Jack it up.... (not sure how big those wheels are) grab the wheel at the noon and 6 o'clock postion and try and move it up and down... if there is play... ball joint ... next grab the wheel at the 9 and 3 position and try to move it side to side... if there is play it's a tie rod...

You simply need to have the Front end Reallingned. You could have lost a Couple of shims.
