superhawk is on a distinguished road
Default 08 frent end

Who here has a 08 quad cab two wheel drive and doesn't have issues with the front end getting out of shape when you drive over highway seams or pot holes? Is your truck stock, if not what did you do, what did you install to clean up the front end?
I know there are other threads with suggestions, but I don't recall anyone posting who has installed parts and solved the problems. I'm getting ready to buy the suggested parts, but I'd like to hear from those who have done the installs with great success.
Thanks

What do you mean by "getting out of shape"?

I am not sure what you mean by "out of shape." What is the truck, and the front end specifically, doing?

When I drive over a bad patch job, shallow pothole, or a bad seam the front end wants to veer to the left the corrects itself. the faster the truck is traveling the worse it handles. I've had the front end aligned,but it still does it. My durango did the same thing, but nowhere is bad.
I hope this is a better explanation.
btw I did have the front end inspected, and the shop did not find any wear on the front end components.
