Question a few things..

first off. first off i did my outer axle shafts wheel bearings ball joints all the seals and i havent really had the time to drop off the truck for an alingment i got a death wobble in the front end like my old 93 cummins used to do lmao nuts i was wondering where i should start the diagnos of this. tie rod ends? alignment? re balance of tires? i still have to do the inner seals one weekend but thats gona be a pain so ill be putting it off it doesnt leak just moisture in the tube pisses me off friend pushed it in a lill i reckon. o well im also gona be putting a steering stablizer on it soon 60 bucks moog brand from local orielys. so where should i start?
second off. im gona be puttin resistors on my ic sensor would i find those at the local parts store or a radio shack? and should i buy a few different sizes to test out? what would be the way to determine how many ohms my truck would like? i just have an intake exhaust and superchips programmer off road tune. i just wanna find the one suitable for my truck. you guys have all been very helpful i hope to re pay the favor 1 day. thanks again cody.

Cody,

From what I can understand of your post, here are my thoughts.

You should take it in for alignment. Make sure you wheels are balanced, etc. Get the easy stuff done first. BUT before all of that, check your steering linkage. Can you get it to move (rotate the linkage, back and forth...)? If so, replace it. That is not a hard job at all. Only problem is the Moog parts will cost you about 400 or so.

You will have to get the whole steering linkage, because on ours there was more joints in it then just the tie rod ends. IDK on a 4x4.

FWIW
