This might not be it. But its worked for me many times

Takes some patience

Roll the wheel full Clockwise to the stop

Then roll it full Counter-Clockwise to the stop

Now heres the TRICK: MAKE THE MOVEMENTS LAST, 2-3 minutes--AS YOU TURN THE STEERING WHEEL IN SUPER--SLOW MOTION!

I SEE THE DIFFERENCE START AFTER SEVERAL CYCLES.

GIVE ME SOME GOOD/ SUPER INEXPENSIVE NEWS!

I would really check into that since a 7.3 turbo will not clear the fire wall on a 6.0 truck and the trans are totally diffrent. The motor mounts are not in the same spot. A 6.0 liter fuel system uses a return style pump and a 7.3 doesn't so if he did do that it would cost thousands of dollars to do and even more if you did a decent job of it.
