My husband's Dodge Ram 1500 has had 2 power steering pumps replaced. The last pump was replaced in less than 39 days. Within the last week we have had 4 different episodes of the power steering gpoes out. When the power steering does go out there is a hard jerk to the right side. This is very dangerous. This past time my family and I was pulling a 27 foot camper behind us when the steering went out. We also had to replace the struts on the truck. This is ridiculous to keep having these dangerous problems. I will no longer let my son ride with his father because of the parental of the steering going out. This should not happen.
