Does it currently run OK right now? If yes, why not wait till there is a problem to make changes?


Yes, she runs like a champ! Not sure why I should wait until thereís a problem to make changes? There is a problem; she went from driving like a Cadillac to driving like a dump truck. Iím not going to wait until the wheels fall off to fix it. Iím trying to stay out in front of the issue. I learned a long time ago that the longer you wait to address an issue, the more itís going to cost to fix.

Mr. Diesel -

Yeah Iíve dealt with death wobble before (on my lifted trucks never stock) but it doesnít feel like that. Doesnít mean itís not that either. I have a 4Ē lift I want to put on it and was going to replace the passenger side knuckle/kingpin for a crossover steering set up. If thatís it then I will need to go ahead and install new driver side as well. Iím wondering if I may have a U-Joint going out. Just feels like the hole truck is rattling. Not bad but over night she went from smooth to rough.

Actually an error message kept popping up saying the server is not responding so I would hit cancel and try again and again. When it finally went through I had sent it 4 or 5 times.

Update! So took the tires to check if they were in balance and one had busted radial band and was the culprit. From outside everything looked good but tire would not balance. Replaced tire and she rides like a Cadillac again.

Oh if  only all the square body's rode like Cadillac's !!!

Guess there's a price for holding on to stock gear and the recent past.

When peeps ask me about "mileage" I smile and say it's a small cost for a piece of the past...
