Center steering wheel - GMC5500 2006
When I asked the shop I use to maintain this truck to center the steering wheel for me (the truck travels straight as a string with the wheel cocked 10-15 degrees to the left, and tire wear is fine), the mechanic said it can't be done - only one tie rod is adjustable, and I'd need to replace some parts in order to be able to adjust both and center the wheel that way (he also said it would be tough to center it any other way).
Sounded crazy to me, but this guy is a long time big truck mechanic, and knows an adjustable tie rod when he sees one.
What parts should I be ordering?
