Hello from mexico

hello my name is john and I'm from mexico, my truck is a ford ranger 1977 with Super Swamper tires 44 "engine 400 and flowmaster.

I wanted your advice because I feel very unstable the truck from the direction.

to see if their experience can provide some tips to improve this situation, I know that vehicles with big tires have this situation but this truck I feel grossly unstable.


greeting

Welcome to RF!

Very nice truck!!

So, you say that your truck feels unstable? Does it feel unstable when you turn?

I wish rangers looked like that in Canada.
Welcome but I hate to break it to you. That is an f150 or 250 w/ the "ranger" trim level.

Unstable could be anything from unbalanced tires to a Bad front end that needs an alignment.
Post up more pics of your suspension and give us some more details. Like Taylor mentioned, does it feel this way when turning? Stopping? At highway speeds?

Check your air pressure. I have E load tires and the shop I got them at put 60psi since that is what they were supposed to be. I lowered them to 35psi and the truck doesn't bounce as much.

thank you very much everyone.

Taylo and Morris looks unsteady as you go from 30 to 40 km

very slowly if you do not notice.


you have to go with the wheel well taken if not go from one lane to another.

greetings and thanks again

id say get an alignment, check to make sure your panhard and drag link are parallel, and maybe look into purchasing a different set of tires and wheels. since your driving in on the road get a setup that would shrink you sidewall ie: a 17 or 18 inch rim instead of a 15 and maybe step down to a 40 or 42. this would help reduce the squirmy feeling.

beautiful truck though. im loving the red.

I do not know the truth lol

I do not think it's lineup, why not be one side only, what I feel is that it is difficult to keep focused is going from one side to another.

can not release the steering wheel the truck that you get in another car


but anyway next Saturday led to his lineup for rule all

regards

blue03range thanks.

I make the lineup and had already thought down a bit the size of tire.

but the truth is that I like so much as seen. hopefully can find some other option to reduce this without having to change tires.

regards

Those tires are not the best for street. They are a soft compound and pretty much a mud tire. They will wear quickly if you daily drive on them and don't keep up on the rotations every 7000- 10,000 miles.
Get an alignment, I'm sure it'll help.

look what happens is that it is difficult to maintain the right direction moves from side to side and you have to be very careful if you can not move to another lane

thanks

suena como las llantas están fuera de alineación. un garaje local debe ser capaz de solucionar este problema para usted.
