Almost put truck into concrete barrier lastnight

Well Friday I had new nitto mud grapplers installed and they checked my front saying I needed 4 bushings replaced so they could align the front so I said go for it well now my truck feels like its floating. I was doing 70 switched lanes little faster then normal due to someone pulling in front of me. When I did the truck went everywhere and I almost lost control causing a huge wreck. It feels like I'm driving a dodge with a shot front end. Monday I'm going back to have a nice talk with them.

And this is exactly why I don't let any "mechanic" touch my truck. Especially on these super duty's, there are too many things that can go wrong and I would feel much better knowing I screwed something up rather than somebody else.
Go give them a piece of your mind

305/70/16 is what I put on nothing big and the truck had dick cepek mud tires before. I have ran numerous mud tires before and never had this issue. It literally feels like my old 2000 cummins with a shot front end but worse. If I give it 1/4 throttle it will launch right or left and at time my steering wheel will be turned a little just for the truck to drive straight.
