steering wheel jump

So I recently had my pitman and idler arms, a bad tierod, and a bad wheel bearing replaced. Had the truck alligned and drives perfectly straight, however, when I hit any sort of bump my steering wheel jumps. The truck doesn't move and still drives in a straight line. Just wondering what the deal is here... Oh and I replaced the steering stabilizer too.

Could it be just all the new parts on the passenger side??

It may have been a column issue that was there before, just unnoticed 'till new parts below went in?

Cheap fix for the bearing slop inside is to add a 2" hose clamp to the outer metal sleeve, just above the plastic collar (green, or on older models it's white) inside, up under the dash.

Rule that ^^ out 1st (most common). If still there, check the ISS out under the hood.

I had this happen to me when I bought my truck exact scenario. There are 2 or 3 bolts that hold the steering wheel column to the dash frame I dont remember how many or how big they are its been prob a year since I fixed it but they come loose and the wheel has up and down play if you do it right you can probably lift up and down on it. Take the column cover off and the kick panel under the steering wheel and you should see the bolts. Make sure theyre tight it only takes 10 minutes to do dont be surprised if theyre loose

Cool, thanks guys. I'll test these out and see what happends. Hopefully it is only loose bolts.
