I'm just running out of viable ideas as to WTF is going on. Have read thread's clear back to about '99. Seems to be a long standing issue. Most of the time it feels like bearing or bent wheel, but then the front end feels like it shift's and is going to come out from under it. It'll shoot me over half a lane +. And if you crank wheel and reverse you get a clunk and feels like it's shifting a couple inches. Replaced 7/8 of front end by now. Starting with tie rod ends and shock's. Yes monroe not crap. I've been turning wrenches since I could grasp one and never experienced anything like this before. Is there any new theories about possible fixed or at least make it safe?

I had that happen when my hubs where shot. The shop had a new guy install them over torqued, so they last about a month from new. Other then that, my idle arm was shot and that created loose steering, also maybe check your pitman arm and power steering bolts. Have you checked your rag joint on the steering colum?

Is the 1/8 of the front suspension you haven't replaced the control arm bushings?

Variable front geometry will do something like this. I had a UCA bushing that had come out and was laying on the control arm. Had similar sensations when turning

How much abuse has the vehicle seen in it's life? Changing half a lane by itself would indicate some serious issues either with steering, suspension and what comes to my mind also a broken frame may make it act like that.
