You can replace the tie rod pretty easily.
Hopefully it's warranted but I doubt it. I would take that $1500. Do the ball joints yourself and beef up the steering with HD parts,

|shipjim||I have 325/65R/8 Ha kooks. Having issues with shimmy (was death wobble) after balance and rotation, double damp and re torquing a tortion bar now just shimmy. 4X Parts says upper and lower ball joint , cams,new tie rod all for $1500 should be good as new. For grins I took it to my Jeep dealer who is trying to decide whether to warranty any of this. I have 2.5 pro comp suspension lift. Let you know. jj|

|the Kolector||There is a Discount Tire being built here in Louisville, wonder if the discount still applies in store??|

Got 'Em in today. Ordered Wednesday afternoon

P rated not a LT tire designed for 3/4 and 1 ton trucks
Can keep my stock wheels, I do not have spacers and have no rubbing issues.
Mileage warrantee, most LT tires do not have a mileage warrantee
So far I have about 5k miles on them, they ride great, I still get good mileage and they balanced easily, I have no vibration issues.

|Gunbunny||I ordered my wheels through Discount Tire and then bought the tires locally. Can't beat the prices of their wheels.|

|3JKs1H1||I will not use Discount Tire again. I paid $60 for mounting and balancing (lifetime balance). They didn't balance them correctly the first time, I went elsewhere and had it redone (friend's shop - he did not carry BFG brands at the time). Hopefully my experience was unique and their balancer wasn't calibrated. Still it was not worth the hassle of getting a partial refund or dealing with an inexperienced technician.|

Those look sweet. Exactly what I'm looking to get once my stockers tread wears down.

|j0nx||I don't envy you Joey. I bought a 2010 mustang vert in 2009 and that car shimmied like hell right off the lot and I didn't really notice it because it was dusk when I test drove it and dark when I took it home. I went through hell and back to get that car rolling right. The dealer replaced the first set and those were even worse than the first set. The dealer at that point washed their hands of it and I had to deal directly with Pirelli through another local tire shop to get a new set which was about 90%. The car never drove 100% and always had a slight shimmy. Pirelli pzero nero tires are the squarest junk out there from what I found out later. It was a major hassle getting that car to drive well and one that I never want to repeat.|
