Question Turning vibration

I have a 97 F-150 4.6L with rear drum brakes. When I make a turn, either direction the whole truck vibrates badly, it is also very loud. I did a full brake job and it is still there, I noticed my rear leaf springs are not straight, meaning they are not stacked right on top of eachother its like the bottom one is to the left a little and the other two are straight... is that normal, or could that be what makes the vibration. could they be moving when I turn? Thanks

Re: Turning vibration

Re: Turning vibration

Its normal for the bottom spring to be off a bit. 1/4 to 1/2 inch. I would have the wheel bearings checked out. Jack the back up and put it in neutral. Turn the wheels and see if there is any noise. Use a bar under the tire to raise up and see if there is any play. Pull and push on the wheel and see if it moves in or out any.

I love it when people do things right
Unfortunetly I dont always do that lol
