    Hey everyone, i just put some 37" humvee tires on my k5, im running dana 44 front and dana 60 rear, when i am braking and down to 35 my truck starts shaking violently back and forth then under 25 it stops. Any idea what could cause this? warped rotors? sumthing odd w/ the tires but why only at 35? thanks Mike

    otherwise check rotors and for any looose steering joints or loose steering box or loose anything else

    loose bolts

    i second that i had 33s on my first blazer when i went to 35s it went in to convoultions when i was braking i put the 33s back on it stopped. i found the left side u bolts wernt loose but they wernt tight enough so i went over the front suspension with a fine tooth comb and the problem went away, found left side u bolts and a worn tie rod end i guess the leverage difference was enough to cause a wobble
