    At slow speeds when I have the wheel turned all the way the front tires wobble . I have 33's and The axles are stock. Any ideas, besides aliens or possessed vehicle theories?[​IMG]

    I would check your front end (tie rods etc) for wear. Also make sure your lugnuts are tight (I know it sounds stupid, but ya never know).

    Its not the lugs![​IMG], I'm just not sure what kind of wear I'm looking for, its only when the wheels are turned all the way, and I also replaced the wheel bearings, and it still does it, so tie rods , anything else I should be looking for...

    Maybe your wheel or axle shaft is bent, that wouldn't expalin why it only does it while turning though......

    Is it possible the inside of your tire is hittin the tie rod end or something else. Start up the truck and have someone turn the wheel lock to lock and look to see if its hittin anything. If its a mud tire its most likely the lugs (on the tire) hittin something. When I bought my truck it had no lift and 33" Thornbirds and the lugs would hit the tie rod end and the steering wheel would shake and make a pretty good racket. If thats not it might be something in the steering system or suspension.
