Right front tire side to side movement

Jacked up truck today to rotate the rubber and the right front tire wiggles slightly from side to side but not up and down. I found the play where the steering linkage connects to i think its called the spindle? Does the entire linkage have to be replaced or can it be bought in pieces? How much and how hard to fix?

Go to Download PDF Dodge | PDFTown.com and down load the manual. The play could be in any tie rod end, ball joint or possible whl bearing. Get under the veh not running and have someone wiggle the steering wheel left to right and you should be able to determine where the excessive play is. I hope this helps and it anyone else has more insight on this - step up to the bar. As far as parts cost that's a good question which can't be answered until you know what has to be replaced plus whl alignment.

The parts can be changed individually, but check them all thoroughly because chances are good that more than one are worn. You can replace most of them without too much trouble or special tools, but as stated above, you'll want a wheel alignment.

The only thing with a little play is the tie rod end closest to the right front wheel.

Awesome. I have successfully estimated front wheel alignment when changing a tie rod end by counting the exposed threads on the center link before removing the old one and leaving the same number exposed when installing the new part, but you are relying on the precision of the machining, and 315/70/17's are pricey.
