    hey fellas,

    I have a 2011 Tundra with a 6" CST lift on 33" Toyo Mt open country, I get a slight steering wheel shimmy, Does anyone have any good experience or references with steering dampers/stabilizers?
    Thanks for the feedback!
    God Bless!

    Tundras have a rack and pinion steering, not a steering box. The dampening is built into the R&P. Adding a steering stabilizer will fight the R&P and piss you off even more.
    Your tires are probably out of balance. Get them road force balanced.

    In that case should I upgrade the rack and pinion?

    There is no upgrade.
    I'm telling you, just get the tires road force balanced. The steering wheel shimmy is very common with aftermarket lug centric wheels (rather than hub centric factory wheels). http://www.hunter.com/gsp9700

    Also, go with 35" tires - especially on that lift :stirthepot:

    35" on a 3" lift look great.
    33" on a 3" looks like it skipped leg day for a week.
    33" on a 6" looks like it skipped leg day indefinitely.

    Maybe I am mistaking on the lift size then. I just bought this truck, the look is well perportioned. I will have to go over the paperwork again, it's a quality CST lift done at Off-road warehouse in San Diego. I was told it was a 6" lift.

    I would say that's a 4 inch lift in the front and nothing in the back. Sean is right, does not look like a 33" tire.

    Sorry for the late response, after reviewing paper work it's only a 3.5" lift
