That is what you want . If you have to turn it by hand back to center after a turn it is to tight

Now the wheel comes back on its own but not all the way center, would that be the steering box just worn out or is it too loose now?

You will never get it perfect , but if it comes back close to center then you are fine

Did this on my 99 the other day. The truck handles alot better and its not like im driving a boat down the road and im not fighting with the steering wheel to keep the truck on the road. Made a very noticeable difference in handling!
