    Steering trim

    I'm constantly having to adjust my steering trim on my radio from right to left and vice versa. The truck never wants to stay in a straight line for very long. Getting baffled.

    Sounds like you need to center you servo to me...

    Pretty sure it is centered. The trim still seems to fluctuate as I drive. I did some stuff to the suspension recently.

    Make sure everything is tight except for the pillow balls which need to be tight enough so there is no slop but loose so it can move freely.

    If the servo wanders than try another to see if the problem persists.

    Do you have TSM? if you do, TSM must be completely turned off while adjusting steering
    trim.

    Did you replace the steering servo with a better one?

    All of the castle style nuts on the knuckles were very loose. I loosened them for the above reason however when I checked the wheels there was a lot of wobble. I have tightened everything down just to the point of having free suspension but no wobble. I will test this out and hopefully my problem will be solved.
