    Hey Im only 14 going on 15 yrs old. My parents just got me this nice little pickup, but having steering wheel problems. The steering wheel kinda sticks (stiff). Is that normal ?

    Welcome to the club Chris, it's great to have you aboard. Not sure about your steering being stiff, could you give us a little more info?

    I don't know if its missing spring in steering column or not but when driving on straight and you come to a curve in the road the steering seems to stick. so it seems like your jerking the wheel.

    Don't really understand the problem but does it have power steering. When u go from a truck with power steering to one without it can be a work out

    seems to me to be a rusty or non lubed steering item,grease youre ball joints and other front end items,if one does not take a pump or two,try cranking the wheel a bit to introduce lube
