Exclamation lifted 250 now a question about it..

I recently installed a lift on my cc f250, 35" nitto terra grapplers, and 22" rims. My question is when I get going about 45-55 mph the truck tends to shake alittle. Is this normal because of wider tires? I'll post pics soon..

Something maybe loose, check the trac bar.......

But then again like Harohunter said, are they balanced? Do you have an aftermarket steering stabilizer on?

yes I took it to a tire shop they mounted and balanced them. No steering stabilizer, would that be good idea to get one?

yes it woud be a good idea, also, did you drop your driveline carrier bearing? it may be required, even with a small lift like that.

Rob's talking about driveline viberation when you get up to speed, so I guess the question is, is what your feeling in the seat or in the steering wheel?
