Yes the most recent alignment I had done was in September of 2010. I had both inner and outer tie rods replaced because the previous owner did not take care of this truck. They had the nerve to weld the tie rods together , made me sick to my stomach that someone would do that. I got this truck in March of 2010, after a month I had it I had to take it back to the service department for a bad winding sound. Turned out the pinion barrings wore out and the carrier barring was full of metal. Thank god it still had the factory warranty and fixed.

But yes I have had a recent alignment. The tires on the other hand seem to be ok. I am coming up on 60,000 miles, I do plan on getting new tires when I get my level kit installed.

I remember seeing on this site somewhere about a tech bullentin addressing this. I said something about the lower control bushings wearing out causing this. I know there is a little movement in my lower bushing but not enough to cause this prob yet. Ive had the rears and the front rotors warped. Changed them both out to EBC slotted crossed drilled with yellow stuff pads. Cost a little extra but the shaking has gone and my braking is way better even with 35's on it
