So after wheeling last night, i dunno wat i did. Anyway i was trying to crawl over a pretty big rock.. it ended up rolling on me and came up and smoked the underside of my drive side front tire area and mangled my fender n shit.. Then when driving home i noticed after 60 kmph on my Speedo.. Prob off cuz of the 33's.. I got hops.. like it felt like i was running over speed bumps at like top speed.. U slow down it goes away.. but at exactly 60 k i get mad hops.. BEFORE i went wheelin at 60 k id get wobbles and hops but no where near as bad because my tires are super bald and un balanced.. Is it possible the driver side front tire that i hit the rock with is just completly fucked now or what else could it be?

if it was the tire causing this you would feel it at any speed and as ya speed up it would increase in frequency
(the tire is fucked tho)

and that it does.. the tire before was bad but not this bad.. from like 40-60 it would hop a bit then get a death wobble but as i increased past 80 it would go away.. Now after 40-60 its so badd i cant even increase speed no more its fuckin scary. Trucks been parked till i get new tires.. aint gonna risk my own safety or hurt someone else.

i dunno man i had the same thing happen to me in my 1986 ( the big little sister to this truck ) and i couldnt drive it without my evil kenevil dare devil helmet, turned out to be bushings on the uh.. the um... the thing that connects to the .. Hip bone.. i mean, that keeps the front axle straight, it got worse for me when i braked hard also.

I had the same problem, it was the rim.

But most likely it is the tire.
