Timing and vibration problems!

How is the timing changed on the 4.0? I have to run plus all of the time and high test when pulling a trailer. It pings like it needs the timing backed off. If this cannot be done, what is another solution? This thing should be able to run 87 octane. Next question. I have a vibration in the front end. You really feel it above 50 mph. Ive put new tires all the way around and changed all 5 of the U-joints up front. What else is a common problem on these?

Thanks all!
