You went from $5k to $8k in repairs now, in a week? (Tires don’t count)
Thought you were contemplating a new truck vs dumping more $ into the old one?
$8k would buy you everything from the frame down, including a new axle…I think you need a new mechanic. A while ago….
Your steering gear is worn out. I suggest replacing it with a Redhead brand rebuilt unit. BTW, don't let anyone tell you they can just adjust it. That wont do it.
Well the only thing left is new tires. You've thrown everything else at .
The only other thing I can think of you might try is heavier springs. If I recall correctly, the front springs on the Excursions were softer than on the trucks to help with the ride. Too softly sprung could lead to wandering.
Before I sold it, I would try to find a good suspension shop and get a second opinion.
