    Before I take my 4x4 to the shop, I was curious if there an aftermarket rack and pinion that had steering dampeners on them. I have slightly larger wheels, but nothing crazy. Just have a leveling kit on it. I noticed it wondering the road a bit too much, discovered a bad wheel bearing and slop in the rack. My last vehicle was a full size doge dually, which just went in the direction I pointed it with very little correction.
    This tahoe I've have to correct it's steering every second it is in motion. Thanks for the suggestions.

    depending on you mileage, you may have some other worn ball joints or end links. I haven't looked, but I've not seen dampers for rack and pinion steering. Also, wider tires tend to follow the road dips more.

    I just did this to mine as I was constantly going side to side on the wheel. Only did the big bushing. Between this and an alignment, I track straight without any extra motion. I did notice some leaking inside my boot though, so a reman rack may be in store next time it needs done.
