Agreed. I'd start with the rotors & inspect all of your balljoints & bushings while you've got it down. Before you tear it down, get a buddy or lady friend to sit in the truck, running, and turn your steering wheel from side to side. You should be able to notice any play in your trackbar's joints.. Do that before you put it on the jackstands; won't work without the truck weight on the suspension. If you have much play, you could either replace the entire bar, or I'd advise you to do a Luke's Link setup.
And to answer your question, how much slack do you have in the wheel? Your steering gearbox has a slack adjustment built in. It should be an allenhead type bolt with a jam nut on it. You can try to do some adjustment there, but keep in mind that it doesn't take much to make a huge difference. If you get it too tight, your truck will not seek center.

I went for about 20ft after the hit and felt fluid down my chin.
