Just bought an 05 X. Came with a 4" lift which i didn't really want but the engine checked out ok (so far, knock on wood) so i figured i could handle replacing tires and lowering it. Came with Nitto Terra Grapplers 352 65 18's. The tires rubbed front and back, steering was loose and it wandered pretty bad.
So, I replaced the tires with Nitto TG's 295 70 18's E rated, put on dual steering stabilizers, replaced track bar bushings, took a 1" block out of the back and shorter shackles on the front.
Drove it home and steering still seemed loose.
Better, but definitely too loose especially when going over bumps and changing lanes on the hwy. I didn't a little back and forth swerving and it seemed to kind of waller around.
Do you think I need new springs? Steering box? Shocks?
