1999 f-250 power stroke 7.3

Is there any one that could tell why my truck wanders over the road. I have replaced both upper and lower ball joints on both sides and had our ford dealership do a complete alinment.They checked the torque required to turn the wheels when disconnected from the tire rod ends and they did a couple of other checks and every thing is within specs.I have not replaced the tyrod ends as of yet I just read on the forum that the tyrod ends could sieze and cause a steering problem and I also heard that they were having problems with the steerin box but to replace it it is over $600. so I want to be sure that it is the problem.That is why I am sking for any ones help in solving this problem.
thanks rsimpson

If the truck has "Memory Steer" like a seized ball-joint acts, then it could be the tie rod ends. I think there is a TSB on 200o-2001 models about this issue, but it applies to similar models.

If the truck is low miles and sits alot, then this is possibly the issue.
