    How old is the kingpin springs over the bushings? My truck did it bad until I replaced them,(I even place a 2" washer above the spring for more tension than stock) because I run large off road tires.Set toe in more than stock if you run 36" tires or larger

    I was getting a really bad wobble in my front end at one time whenever I would hit the slightest bump. I ended up having one of my tires out of balance. When I fixed this, the problem went away. Give that a try.

    GOT ROCKS?
