My truck has about 30K original miles so it does not have a lot of slop in the front end. The tires are original and have never been rebalanced, bushings are original, etc. which no doubt could be part of the issue

This totally sux do now I need to return the dampner.

I will go with OEM or more likely OME.

I would just go get the cheapest 50/50 shock you can find. These things are all equal.
