I am new to this group. I am thinking about purchasing a Dodge Ram 1500
Quad Cab. I recently saw two at a dealership with the same miles,
around 49K. One was a 2002 and the other a 2003. I've read some of your
quotes regarding the steering problems in the 2002.

"I am new to this forum but the problem with your trucks is this: In
about the 2002 model year, Dodge engineering redesigned the steering
gear box to make the truck handle more like a car. It didn't work. Two
characteristics are a unpredictable tendency to wander, and upon going
over s dip in the road, the steering wheel will rotate slightly. My
dealer tech talked to "Star", the Dodge Tech-Support in Detroit, and he
knew the problem well.
There is no fix, period."
Does anyone know if this was changed in the later models?
