Steering Linkage replacement

It's time for me to replace the steering linkage in my '05. Is there something that I can upgrade to that will also help take out some of the "wander" that I get, or do you think it's best to just stick with a stock replacement? And can I just replace the linkage bushings that are worn out, or does the entire linkage arm need to be replaced?

Thanks. I've been looking at those, thinking I might try one. Sounds like it may be worth a shot, even if I do need to replace the linkage as well.

I would upgrade to the 08.5 steering. Comes complete with pitman arm, drag link and tie rod. Nicer setup for sure. That and a steering box stabilizer and you'll think you're driving a new truck.
