Re: AAM ball joints.

When I replaced my ball joints. I had to use a 7" fiber cut off wheel and cut the studs on the ball joints because I couldn't remove the unit bearings. Once I got the steering knuckle out and on the ground. i used a sledge hammer to knock the unit bearings out. :roll:

Re: Sway and oscillation

I installed a new set of 35" Toyo MT's back in June. Ever since, my PW feels squirrelly. The lower the air pressure, the better they feel to a point.

Re: Trackbar or other popping sound

Have someone start the truck and wiggle the steering wheel back and forth. While you are looking at all the suspension points. Pay attention to the trackbar mounting points. Also check your u-joints and ball joints.
