Calgary Mechanic

Hi, Been here a long time absorbing. Just wondering if there is a good mechanic to work on these trucks, I have bad steering wander after installing a Redhead box, upgraded powersteering, and a new moog ball joint, steering feels loose then tight while driving. There is also a clunk in the steering wheel/shaft while driving and making turns, this is friving me crazy. any help would be greatly appreacheated. Thanks

If you post in the appropriate section for your year of truck on this board you should get lots of help.
Have you done any basic diagnosis like crawling under the truck while it is running and have someone turn the wheels back and forth to look for particularly loose or sloppy parts?
You should also look at the shaft from the steering wheel to the steering box. I wonder about the condition of the rag joint.
