Wobble...

My truck has a fairly bad vibration coming from the front end when I am at about 45mph. Once I get to 50mph it isn't quite as bad but still noticeable. Does anybody have an idea as to what could cause this?

Do you think it could be a tire issue, maybe one of the weight's came off.

It did it before and after I had the tires balanced and I just replaced the ball joints. My next guess was wheel bearings.

if your ball joints where bad then they probly caused un even wear on the front tires. have them rotated and get an alignment. see if that helps any. also you might have the rotors checked to make sure there not warped. if its not either of those then replace the wheel bearings

Steering stabilizer maybe! These rigs have pretty big tires on them....even stock! Mine had a slight shimmy from day one, Dealer rebalanced and still shimmied. Rotated and was slightly better but still there till I installed dual steering stabelizers. just a thought!?

Would the rotors being warped make it wobble bad even when I am not using them? I will try the alignment. If that doesn't work then I will try the stabilizer and finally if that doesn't work I will go with the expensive option of replacing the wheel bearings. Thanks for the help!

You should'nt notice them as much. If when you applay your brakes does it shake the steering wheel? If it does turn your rotors. If was wheel bearings you would hear a rummble or growling noise in front. Definatley check stabilizer probably there.
