hey just wondering if anybody has done a straight axle conversion on a ford ranger or explorer and experienced a wobble and what they did to cure it . somebody told me to set the toe out a bit and it did help a fair bit but it is still there a bit thanx

i had a wobble after i installed new front axel it was a combination of loose wheel bearing and a loose sway bar bolt

Yah check your bolts n stuff, and then if it's still there, I'd suggest a trip to an alignment shop to check that caster angle.....

Too much caster can cause some serious death wobble and make sure all tie rod ends etc. are in good shape

Do ya have a good steering stabilizer?

lack of a track bar or sway bar could cause a death wobble.

its lifted with oil so it does have a track bar, no steering stabilizer but i did crawl under today and i noticed one tierod has a bit of play
so i guess i change that and see what happens thanx guys[cheers]
