i can feel the steering shaft clunking/chunking/moving within the steering column. this problem appeared within last 2 weeks. additionally, the steering wheel is no longer centered but rotated about 2 inches left of center in order to maintain straight line of driving. i am convcerned about the safety of this vehicle, both to occupants and other motorists because the steering may fail. the power steering pump was replaced last year as it was leaking. i have seen on the internet that this vehicle has been involved in serious crashes due to steering abnormalities and daimlerchrysler has repurchased numbers of these units both from the state of main and individuals. i would hope that you would force dm to recall all 2001 2500 dodge rams to repair the steering defects or order them to buy them back.
