My problem is that my steering wheel shakes pretty bad left to right while driving around 55mph,but then tends to smooth out at like 75mph. The truck tracks perfectly straight when u let go of the wheel, but tends to be a little "darty" when lane changes are made. I don't really feel a shake in the truck just in the steering wheel. I've had the wheels balanced 2x and the alignment checked 2x. The alignment numbers are all at 0 including caster as the shop said that's the best they could get. I've ordered camburg balljoint UCAs hoping this will resolve the shaking with getting some caster back. Am I on the right track or am I missing something. Any input would be appreciated.
You need caster to be at about 3 degrees, not zero. That's probably a lot of your problem. The new UCAs will definitely help you get there.
I don't think it'll fix the shake though. My truck has always had a bit of a shake, pretty sure it's my wheels just being VERY difficult to get a good balance on.
