loose lug nuts? low tire? bad bearings? Big @ss subwoofer slides to the left when turning and contacts the side making the whole truck shake?

Auto hub locked/ not releasing? I don't know if that might cause an issue on left turns too though.

This morning, I got a bushing to replace the one that was missing from one of the shocks I ordered from JC Whitney. This afternoon I put the shock on to finish what I started yesterday. Took it for a quick test drive around the neighborhood. It's like driving a completely different truck. The old shocks were shot. I took one and compressed it by hand. It did not go back out on it's own. No wonder I was sliding all over the place on some washboard when I went camping 3 weeks ago, the weekend after I got the truck.

It's not what I did but rather the kids throwing **** at cars. Anyways the little buggers broke my windshield and the parents were not being cooperative at all so had to call the cops in to settle things out and have them do whats right, and everyone finally fessed up and are now going to pay for a new windshield. What a GREAT night....NOT.

Washed, waxed, oil change, tires rotated and balanced, now I'm gonna tow the boat to the ocean and enjoy the rest of my day off. Truck might go into shock if I do anymore stuff to it today.
