Hello,
My '01 F350 Dually has a very low to none turning radius you can imagine. It cannot even make a u-turn at a red light or other designated area. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on ways to improve this capability? It takes about two or three attempts, even with the steering cranked basically and throttle. Any info would be great!

Stock Rims /Tires- basically brand new.
Stock Suspension- new shocks.
Stock Power-steering Pump- minor leak.

Not much you can do about it short of buying a different truck. The coil spring front end trucks (05 and newer) have a tighter turning radius, and the parts will bolt on your truck. Of course, that's a pricey effort.

Or you could wait till the road is covered with ice and hit the go pedal when you crank the wheels over. Flips the rear end right around, especially with a dually. :wink2:
The more more sane solution is to just go around the block.

people are always talking about 05+ have better turning radius. for my experience my 02 as a tighter turning radius than my 08 and by far. My 02 will almost u-turn on a 2 lane road and the 08 won't even get 90* to the road
