Whenever I hit rough terrain at high speeds for an extended period of time my steering gets real loose and the steering wheel gets a shit load of play in it.

I noticed this not only on my Tacoma, but my '95 Silverado as well so I'm wondering if its normal. Can anybody explain whats happening?

You should't be getting a whole lot of bump steer on a Tacoma, they're IFS (no steering arm). Shitty shocks don't allow your tires to remain planted in the dirt. If it only happens after extended periods of time its because the fluid in your shocks is heating up.

Got stock shocks? There's your problem.

Off road shocks have better valving, more fluid, and sometimes external cooling surfaces. Aside from tires they are probebly the best off road improvment you can make.

yeah i thought shocks might be an issue, so i replaced the stockers with some billy 5100's and the problem still exists. the power steering fluid hasnt been changed for at least 3 years so maybe i'll flush that out and get some fresh shit in there.
