    What can it be?

    What's up everyone I have an 02 escalade with 140k on the dash. I have this
    Problem that whenever I drive for a good amount of 30mins it happens to jump as I turn like if I had a flat tire. Anyone had this problem before. Would it be the
    Driveshafts?

    You should probably check out your steering linkages, pitman arm, idler arm, upper and lower ball joints on the front end. It sounds like excessive play in your steering or front suspension. Try jacking it up where the front tires are off the ground, then turn them left and right by hand and look to see if there is slop between the tires or if they are moving together as a unit.

    I've checked all of that. The truck drives great with no play on the wheel no vibration, I got it aligned and
    everything.

    Lower steering shaft might be faulty. Cheap and easy to repair.

    Or it could be the steering gear box, Google it. It can be adjusted in 10 minutes or so and can solve a great deal of steering issues. Do it wrong however, can cause non reversible damage and will require the steering box to be replaced completely, Again, relatively cheap but still a pain in the arse.
