I have a 4WD Regular Cab Diesel F350 with approx 92K miles. At slow speeds when I turn the steering wheel either right or left, the steering doesn't recover normally, that is it tends to stay turning to the right or left until I pull the steering back to neutral. This truck has a steering stablizer on it (looks like a shock absorber). Could this be the culprit? BTW, I've replaced the tires and the pressure is set correctly, but the problem persists.

Stock size tires? Sometimes bigger ones wont return like smaller will. If so be sure front end is lubed real good, dry pivot points can bind up. Could be the stabilizer or the steering box, you can disconnect the stabilizer to see if it is binding up the front end, it wont hurt it to drive without it to see. If that doesnt do it, the steering box is probably the culprit
