Angry Whats Wrong With My Truck

Ok so i fill dumb but the other night i was driving home and nailed a curb going like 35mph. Now when i go above 60mph it shakes pretty bad, and when i push on the brakes it shakes really really bad. I have checked my brakes and fixed the tire that got messed up from the curb. Does anyone know what the problem could be so i can start working on it??? Thanks

Sounds like you either assed something up in the suspension or bent your wheel. You may have fixed the tire, but it sounds like that wheel is out of balance now.

How about an alignment? Often when you hit somthing like that, especially after you have had to repair the tire, you knock the front end out of alignment. I'm sure that the tire got balanced...

Bent wheel, or damaged suspension component. This could be a safety issue for you and others on the road. Should get it checked out soon.

I would definitely look into getting an alignment. That would be my first guess
