Default Feels like the front end is loose

Took my truck to my local dealer because i thought the front end felt a little slack.They checked the entire front end and said all that they found was a slack upper ball joint on the right front.They replaced it but on the way home from the dealer it started again......its fine when hitting dips in the road but sharp holes make the front end shimmy a bit and it just doesn't feel tight.Took it back again with service manager along for a ride and he explained its "normal".Any ideas or anybody have this issue as well....thanks

How many miles have you got on the truck? On mine, the sway bar end links and bushings made a difference in how "tight" the steering felt when hitting bumps. Napa and O'Reilly have the sway bar end links that are greasable. The orig. are not. O'Reilly has the sway bar bushings, that are greasable, Napa does not.
