Sorry for the delayed response, but I was on a road trip. I drove the truck from Dallas to Houston and back and have a better feel for things.
I thought I had it straightened out, but unfortunately I'm still fighting the bump steer. When I hit a bump or a dip in the road, the wheel turns left or right. I have no wobble, that I'm sure of. I did when I first installed, but that was self inflicted and was soon corrected. I also realize that some bump steer is to be expected, but I think mine is a bit excessive. Trying to figure out what to try next.
I fully understand the cause based on geometry, so I've crawled under and measured everything to figure out what's off. The drag link measures at about a 6.6deg angle and the track bar is at 15.3deg. The track bar has a dro pin height of 10" over the 38" length, and the drag bar has a drop of 4" over a 38" measured length. So, there is a significant difference, with the track bar being at a steeper angle. I'm tempted to try a drop bracket since they are bolt on replacements for the stock bracket and I can always go back to stock ifit makes it worse.
I'm running some BFG 35x12.50x20. I will be changing wheels and tires in a few weeks. Unfortunately, no pics yet...
