    Ok, I searched.
    What is the size of that washer you put under the cap? I need to start saving this info. Never thought i get a d60 at the time i read it........ Or should i just not be lazy and pull the arm off and drive to the hardware store? Another question, can a guy stack two on each side?? This is only temp till i can get some money together to rebuild it.
    Thanks

    Home Depot,

    Look for 1/2" fender washers. They have a 1/2" hole (duh...) and are 2" in diameter and 1/16" thick. I used three washers per side and death wobble is gone...even without a stabilizer. I run the stabilizer anyways, but I did check it without.

    FWIW I had horrible DW...couldn't drive the truck over 25 mph before I put the washers in.

    Did you put new king pin springs and bushings in the D60 too...or just add the washers to the old springs/bushing? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif
    Thanks!

    Same springs and bushings...just added the washers. The bushings looked new and the springs looked like springs /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif The D60 I bought only had 35,000 miles on it (out of a M1008)
