Got the tires rotated, DW is gone as far as i can tell, I took the pressure down in the front to 30psi before i went down to mikes house, didn't get any DW on the way there. Went on a drive after we rotated them, got as high as 50mph and drove steady @ 35mph for a while and didnt even get a shimmy. Thanks Chris

Also might be getting free door toppers if Mike has them I'll be super stoked if he does.

yeah you'll likely want it, and drop the transfer case an inch too if your angle is extreme.. thats the cheapest part we got some spacer type things.. dont know the name of them though.. they're hollow in the center and threaded on the outside.. they were 1.125" long.. 6 new grade 8 bolts and washers.

Well, here's the thing. If moving the tires around fixed the problem you have a wheel out of balance and you should get them rebalanced because some time down the road you might have to remove some of the tires and if you don't keep track of which one came from where, you might put one of the unbalanced ones back on the front. Also the tires won't wear properly if they are unbalanced.

I would just get a CV drive shaft and be done with it. I wouldn't mess with trying to drop the transfer case.

also might get a screamin deal on tires.. so i may just wait until then.. i'll buy a wheel too and mount one of the good old ones on it as a spare.. now to figure out how to carry said spare.. i still have the tire carrier and they modified the rubber bump stops on the tailgate.. my worry is it will be too heavy for the tailgate though.

Just ask DP about that. He can tell you all about it.

I bet these would fit pretty easily... if you have the cash that is.

Limping home in Fwd is one thing. But knowingly buying a Fwd is just.......ick....
