Get under your front end and have someone turn the wheels back and forth as you look for parts moving where they should not be. Tie rod ends, track bar, steering box play, anything. Then jack your front wheels up and check for play i. The ball joints or wheel bearings. Those are some big tires for a stock front end. If I am reading the numbers as tire size. Had the truck for long?

Over sized tires and wheels? (Common source of steering issues)

 

Bad track bar?

 

Loose steering gear box? (Sector adjustment)

 

Bad tie rod ends?

 

Control arm bushings?

 

Caster angle off? (Caused by lift kits, leveling kits, and oversized tires?)

 I would for sure drop the rear axle and inspect all the contact points, locating pins/holes, spring packs, spring eye bushings while your under there as well. When you reassemble be sure to use new u-bolts and torque to spec then retorque after about 100 miles or a week or so.
