Whole lotta shakin' goin on

Had some issues with this before but nothing like I have now. Used to do it every once in awhile when I would slow down and go into a turn or hit a bump but now it seems like it happens all the time. Im going to go ahead and put in a new steering stabilizer and replace the bushings for the sway bar and trac bar. Anybody know a good place to get the poly bushings. Bronco graveyard has them but I am not sure as to what size to get. They offer 7/8", 1", and 1 1/8" bar??? Anything else I should check/replace/tighten/remove and set on fire whille I am under the front? Power steering pump has been replaced. Tires seem to be ok.

How do the tierods and ball joints look? Also jack up each side and check the wheel bearings

i wouldnt say it would be completely necessary to replace the tie rods just yet but i would be willing to say it wont be too much longer. ball joints look good. soon as i sell the cepek mountain cats i will be getting some new tires. maybe that will help.

Energy Suspension sells the poly bushings. Good quality and a reasonable price. I'll see if I can track down a part number for you.
