    I bought Indiana88's K5, it has a weird wobble that I can't seem to get rid of. At low speeds like around 10-15 mph, I feel the truck kind of sway like the tire is warped or something. then normal driving speeds there is no wobble Throughout the range of speed the truck will begin to wobble/vibrate at speeds @ 65 mph then stop at @ 70mph, then start again at @ 75-80. the best way to describe this wobble is like a shimmy. It feels like all of a sudden the lug nuts are coming loose and it varies with Speed. No on to the specifications. It is a 88 K5 with 14bolt ff in rear anf I think D60 in the front. it has the rough county 4" spring lift. Indiana88 said the axles were off of a 74' K30. I have had the tires ballanced at Bell Tire, but it didn't seem to make a difference. I also had to replace the axle shims. No difference. I hate the wobble, it's the only thing that I haven't been able to fix yet! any Ideas or suggestions to help me get rid of the shimmy or at least find the problem would be great.
