ok so yea i got the truck lifted and all that cool stuff but i cant really drive it if it wobbles.

when i look in my mirror doing about 40-50 it looks like the bed of my truck is going to jump off. i mean like serious shaking. it also makes the cab shake.
what can this be? tire out of balance? i dunno

also im running 25 psi in 38.5/14.5/15 tsl/sx's

Might be a tire out of round. Jack it up and put a brick like an inch from the tire for reference, thsn spin the tire to see if it gets closer or further from the brick. Could be out of balance too.

Yep, definitely the tires. Swampers, especially SXs, aren't exactly known for being smooth or perfectly true.

yea and i got it aligned today and they said all the balljoints and everything are in great shape. so nothing else is wrong except i still need ta get a new steering stab. hopefully the balance takes care of the nasty wobble inthe back.

its a really wierd feeling, ive never had a wobble from the back

Mine does it some. I can see the bed bouncing a little in the mirrors...I got used to it though. Ive just got Equal in mine though, no weights because 4wheel parts are morons.

super out of round Couph, I mean swampers, I have one that is out of round, that has been trued, and balanced over and over, and it still shakes the hell out of my truck..lol... These tires suck, but what do I expect, big tires like this are not made for the road all that well. Send it back, get a better one, or get it cut. -Jordan
