Front End Problems

A few months ago my shocks went out and well today I finally replaced them since the steering wheel has been shaking. Along with that I got the tires rebalanced and still hasn't fixed my problem. What else may be the problem?

Just gotta love when you fix something, something else thats wrong will jump out right at ya. lol.


Jiggling steering wheel usually means tie rod ends. How many miles on the truck? If it's over 100k, good chance it's needing balljoints anyway. IDK how I got 75k out of my stockers. lol.

With that kind of mileage I would put in an order for upper and lower balljoints, and tie rod ends. Might as well do it all while you're in there. I haven't used napa's stuff a lot but I recommend Moog components from rockauto.com
