I know I'm just kidding. I had it very bad too... Couldn't drive more than 35 miles an hour without it feeling like the front end was going to just tear off and do it's own thing.

There's a few campgrounds off 3n16 that you could get a toy hauler into, but they don't have hookups.
Yeah I probably won't take my fifth wheel to BB. Doesn't mean we can't run some trails up there though.

Cool. I'm going to tentatively plan on getting up there Saturday morning early then and camping until Sunday afternoon unless something better comes along!

I know! Lol.
What'd you do to fix yours?

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

It was the track bar and lower control arm bushings. The track bar, I could visibly see the movement on the frame side when doing Mr.Buck's wiggle test. The control arm bushings you could visibly see were destroyed from bashing on rocks... Here's a pic.

Rad.

I'm actually going through my front end tomorrow, something feels loose and it creaks. I have their track bar to install too. Pretty sure my old teraflex has seen better days.

Anyone have recommendations for control arm bushings? I'm thinking of these because its a whole kit. But I'm completely open to suggestions.
