Just before my truck stops it SHIMMIES or shakes or whatever..
thought it was my cluthc , but it does it even when it is not in gear... it is right before it stops... within seconds and it does it for a secodn or two...

looked at brake pads.. and rotors.. the pads are new.. @ 10k on them.. rotors feel smooth and are still very thick.. so I don't think they are warped...

anyone have any clue as to what the cause of this is?

?

alll look ok.. nothing leaking out of the stabalizer..


I thought maybe ball joint... but how do you know if they are bad??

don;t you see if the tire will wobble back and forth with it off the ground?? tried that... nothing really...
greased it and it extended ( expanded).. for lack of a better discription.

With it off from the ground and a large pry bar under the tire, look for movement up and down in the ball joints.
