death wobble?

ok- truck is an 08 with 55k on it. leveled 350 with factory shocks and tires. swapped well worn 285-65-20's goodyear mt's on it. rides smooth down road untill wheels are slightly turned and hit a bump in road. truck shakes and rattles for a little then settles down........ scared crap out of me. smooth no vibrations going straight with bumps or no bumps, any turning over bumps at any speed is shaky..........
1. truck definitely is getting tires soon
2. truck needs adjustable trac bar
3. truck needs shocks and stabilizers
but why the wobble now with this set of worn tires? they are basically same size as stockers........
do i have a new issue?

When was your last alignment? Might do the trick. I know mine does it a bit. Sounds like quite a few people are having this problem. I think some have fixed with an adj. trackbar.

08 F450 CCLB 4.30's

Unless you got a complete level kit your missing parts and thats why your having problems.

You need castor shims, Bilsteins, adj track bar and a correctly aligned truck.

We can get you whats needed PM me.
