    I just made a purchase and brought this 2010! And I'm back. It came with a 3 inch left and rear blocks. I notice that when u go over bumpers the steering wheel is to wobbly especially if im going over 50 on the highway kinda makes the truck jerk i did notice that one of the front swaybar links bushing has grease coming out of it is there anything else that can be causing this issue the shocks are the regular Factory ones.

    It could be any number of things....steering stabilizer, ball joint, tie rod, tire balance, bad rotor.

    When you say wobbly...do you mean the steering wheel shakes? OR the truck feels like it wandering ? If steering wheel shakes, the tires may need rebalance. IF it's wandering and does not feel controlled...Try replacing that sway bar link bushing first since you said it looks worn. Or could be bad shocks also. How many miles do you have on them? But like previous post said..it could be number of things.

    I getva little of both i can tell wheels need to be balance. The truck feels like it's wondering not sure how old the shocks are since I brought it from the dealer.

    Could be anything, ball joints, tie rods, steering link, wheel bearings or alignment...I would start with checking tie rods, ball joints and stabilizer links. Any slop in those will cause you problems. Nice looking truck :)
