Exclamation Serious Wobble Issues

Ok here is goes a few month ago i had the death wobble issue. I got a dual stabilizer and it seemed to fix the problem. Well this week it has come back with force my tires are cuping like crazy now. Well i took both front tires off and started looking around for problems. The only thing i can find is that the output shafts on both sides are very wiggly like maybe a bearing has gone out or something. Ive never owned a truck thats had a solid axle up front so im so lost right now. Anyone out there that can help PLEASE!!!!

Could it be the spindle bearing?

Ive read something about the track bar mounts, especially since you have a 6 inch lift

Everything on the site seems to make sense on what the kit does. I just haven't needed it yet to buy one.

holy crap $989.00 for that beast. is there no other way to fix it? I have started to tear down my drivers side hub in order to get the stub shaft out and when i did get it out the bearing was shot but then i noticed the the stub shaft only turns when the 4x4 is engaged so now im really lost

Tore both side down spindle bearings were worn but now shot I replaced both anyways since it was already all torn down rotated tires and sitting at the alignment shop hoping and alignment will do the trick or they will be able to tell me what the heck is going on

i had the same problem on my '07 f-250 8" pro-comp lift and 37" tires. The only way i could get it to drive right was keep new tires on the front. But, i never did try that $989 bar. The rep from pro-comp said they tried one and it did not work for them.

When I first got my truck, I had the worst death wobble, I thought I needed some serious front end work. I found somewhere that Ford put out a TSB about tire pressure and tire wear. I thought they were crazy but I put new front tires on and it hasent happened since. That was 3 years ago. My 2 cents
