    I have a 19 Peterbilt 389 car hauler. I’m having problems with the steering. The truck wanders and has a slight delay and feels really loose all the time. But has no play. all wheels on the tractor are less than 3 months old. I’ve had the tie rods replaced with alignment all shocks were replaced all of the bushings look good and bearings and king pins were checked by multiple shops any help would be appreciated

    Check the fifth wheel. If it’s dry, it would cause those issues you just described. It’s happened to me. I carry a bottle of Lucas fifth wheel lube. Easy to pour and no mess.
