You can better check if it is the ball joints by jacking both front wheels up off the ground (place sturdy jack stands under each I-Beam axle at a location where the wheels can turn back and forth) then try turning the steering wheel.
Sometimes the ball joints need the weight of the truck on them before they "drag" and cause the problem - so if the steering works smoothly when its jacked up - it very well still could be the ball joints causing the problem.
