    The problem is wierd(does it when it wants to) usualy when brakes are used alot, front end shakes out of control bad ,probling is on going have replaced everthing i can think of. Its not a rotor problem both wheels wobble feels like your going to die,then goes away after you stop.Did same thing with 35 without useing brakes am running265 75 16 mt becaus more controble.But problem is not there all time.Never does it in the rain.

    The washer trick works hands down. It puts a bit more pre-load on the king pin springs and death wobble be gone! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I run 4, 1/2" fender washers on each side...
