Re: I just got My first Truck!!
I love this truck. I finally got the title changed and is now in my name, insured and I got my license and I drive it to work school and everywhere else. Me and my grandpa had to get new leaf springs due to the idiots who had it before me. So I bought new hubs, brakes and whole brake assembly, leaf springs, U-joints, leaf hangers, new bed bolts, and applied rustolium to frame after a good sanding. It now sits about 3 inches higher in the rear. Now I have another problem that has occured. The retarded previous owners also put smaller tires on the front and bigger on the rear. The rear has (225's) and I can't remember the front. But they are really thin. But anyways. I'm putting new tires on it this pay day (Wednesday). I'm going to get much more meatier tires on it. Anyways the problem which I've come across is right when I hit 55mph it starts to get a headshake (horrible tire vibrations in front right wheel. Well I've inspected somewhat, but have'nt had the the time for a full observation. Can you all please point me in the right direction to what might cause this??? It's kinda scary goin down the road and knowing your wheel might fall off. Could it be bearings causing this???? I can't drive on the interstate till this is fixed due to the wheel hop being so bad. Ohh and it's really, really rough if I hit just a small lip in the road on the right side. It almost throws me out of control. I could really use some help. Thanks in advance everyone.
