Hello, I have a 98 chevy tahoe with 24 inch rim/tires. The steering has some play in it.I replaced the pitman arm, idler arm and the steering gear box. Which improved the play alot. I still have some which feels more than should be, also when I drive over bumpy or unevan roads it pulls to the left and or right depending what side of the road is ruff.I also hear a thump sound on the right side when I cross over a speed bump.

Check your ball joints, putting large tires/rims on that throws off the steering geometry and if not corrected steering parts wear out exceptionally fast.

Checked the ball joints and they are tight. Would a front end alignment correct the steering geometry?
