truck wanders

new radius arm bushes, new panhard bushes, ball joints look ok but truck wanders across the road now and then. only driven about 40 miles in the last 4 months. could it be down to flat spots on the tyres where its been standing or is that more of a bumpy ride

3rd low and BOOT IT

Re-check for play in the steering components, then check the u-joint on the steering column from the bulkhead to the steering box. I had a problem with one of mine that caused play in th esteering wheel when I knew that my suspension components were good.

Take a pair of vice grips, clamp them on the shaft at the steering box, then have someone turn the steering wheel, if there is play it will be evident.
