the dampener isnt your issue. if your steering is set up correctly a dampener isnt needed.

as far as the bracket thats bolts to your steering box, that isnt going to fix your issue either.
start off by getting underneath the truck and have someone steering wheel back n forth. You should be able to see something moving.
My guess is a trac bar going bad or a bushing in your control arm.

Take it to an alignment shop. They should be able to pin point the problem. I had a similar problem on my 3500..... and it was the track bar. The bolt holding it in place fell out and the track bar wedged itself into a corner. When I pulled out of the driveway the next morning I had no steering.

Is the truck jacked up with 35" tires or bigger?.....This could also cause excess stress on your steering components creating early failure or slop.
