    So today after school, when I just leave my school parking lot my truck seemed to wander a bit all over the road. But after about 3/4 of a mile it cleared up and drives perfectly fine just like it always does. This is the second time my truck has done this. Its been the same situations both times, very bitterly cold with strong winds and I didn't allow the engine any time to warm up and both times I was leaving my school. What exactly could it be?

    Uhm. I am going to have to go with its windy and you drive a big non aerodynamic truck.........or cuz you were on the same stretch of road that is uneven causing your truck to swerve.

    You're probably right...

    Most likely a combo of the wind, cold, and the road.

    :crazy: :doah:

    Ya but I don't think it has to do with the tires at all. If it did then it shouldn't matter if the engine is warm or not it should be wandering all the time.

    I still need to install my ORD steering brace kit thats sitting in my garage. I think I'll do it next week.
