problems while backing up

i have a 1997 f250 crew cab. it has a 10 inch lift with 37 inch toyos. it also has IFS. when i go in reverse and start backing up the top of my front wheels lean in towards the engine real bad. as soon as i put it in drive and start going they straighten back out. what is this?

Sounds like ball joints get in the truck and turn the wheel all the way in one direction then get out if one is leaning alot more that the other,(ball joints)

you can also jack it up and grab the top and the bottom of the wheel and try to move it in and out top to bottom if so (ball joints)

Ball joints, wheel bearings, and just the fact that you have the TwinTraction I beam suspension can lead to this. Use DJjordan's ideas to determine where your trucks structure is moving when it shouldn't be!
