Jack up the front of the truck and pry on steering components if you find something with play get it fixed. to get the wheel centered go in for a wheel alinment. If they do it right they will look it all over first.

When my 2006 did that the track bar had actually failed, I drove it, shop said I was really lucky, axles could have slid right out of the differentials.

:WHS the track bar has nothing to do with the axles. the wheel brgs hold the axle in place

Will oversized tires void the warranty on your steering box ?
