Can any one help?

Was doing a bit of driving on a long stretch of dirt road this arvo and all of a sudden my front left wheel started shaking and also the steering wheel, I would slow down and jerk the steering wheel to the right to make it stop, would anyone have an idea on what it might be? I've already checked wheel nuts and tightened them

Jack the truck up. Grab the top and bottom of the wheel. Push in on the top and pull out on the bottom and vice versa. If it moves, you have a bad wheel bearing. If not it may be an issue with the steering components.

There's only a handful of things it could be.....bearing, ball joints, tie rod, drag link, maybe bad rotors? Goodluck

^^ i'll add two things - check your track bar and your control arm bushings... start by ruling out what it cannot be. have you done anything to the suspension recently?

The bolt hole on the track bar has warn out and the bolts come loose, I have tightened it for the meantime but I will end up welding some heavy duty washers to fix it properly over the weekend

Good to know for anybody that sees this thread.


DW can ruin ball joints and tie rod ends. Check those if you haven't already.
