I'm at a loss...
... on a mysterious shimmy in the steering wheel of my truck.
I was hunting bear a few weeks ago and driving down out of a logging road when I broke a tie rod end. I limped it home and changed the tie rod end. I counted threads so the alignment was close but not perfect and noticed a shimmy, assumed it had to do with the alignment being slightly off. I had an alignment done and the shimmy is still there at 55 mph and above. I thought it may be my cupped/old tires and they did not shimmy before due to the loose tie rod end, so I put new tires on it to as I needed them before winter anyways. It is still there. The ball joints and tie rod ends are tight. Front end looks and feels tight. Where do I go next with this?
...any and all help is appreciated.
By the way the truck is a '98 Ranger 4x4 4.0 auto ext cab.
