    44\" are on

    Just put on the 44 tsl's with 8"lift took some /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gifand then some /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif but they are on.

    Think it is going to take a body lift to suff them and keep the inner fenders but haven't had time to fooled with it too much.

    When for a ride today and it handle good on the hiway but the back roads it wants to yank the truck all over.
    I never had any problems with my 39.5 is it the with or mabey psi im runing 25 psi now.
    Drag link ends are new and tie rod end are tight. going to cross over and a d60 as soon as it gets rebuilt hopefuly that will help.

    Are the 44's on the same wheels as the 39.5's were?

    When I run a wide tires my truck darts back and forth also, I guess because the extra tread width... /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    if you have a drop draglink, raise steering arm setup, expect crap. Those drop draglinks suck, haven't heard of anyone happy with one.

    Poor poor 10 bolt... /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif

    The width is likely what's causing them to yank the truck all over, big difference between 15" and 18" wide.

    well I would post some pics but don't know how just got a digital camera so I would like to learn.

    I checked my psi today it was about 18 ran them up to 25 and it really helped, know more tomorrow.

    I guess the guage I used at my friends house when we mounted them was junk. oh well these thing happen.
