So I completely cleaned the truck power washed and everything. I hadn't driven the truck before so rotors were not hot. I test drove it afterwards....the problem is WORSE. Now at 45/50 it wobbles bad. All wheels have weights have at least one weight on them. Now I'm not sure if there was more than one to begin with. (or if they even put more than one on) So what should I do? Take it to get the wheels checked? balanced? maybe even an alignment? I'm not sure an alignment cuz it doesn't pull, just wobble. Would anyone consider this "death wobble"? I heard it can happen after "off-roading" and not just front lifted trucks. caused sometimes by bent tie roads after off roading.

commando: what do you mean when you say barrel of the wheel? I took the power washer to the face of the wheels, most of the backside of the wheels (by spraying across the truck underneath) and that's all i could really reach. are there more places the mud could have caked up that I need to reach better? I got a significant amount of mud off, so the fact that it is worse makes it hard to believe there is still more hiding somewhere.
