wheel shakes over bumps

I just picked up a 09 dc lb trd 4x4. The truck is either lifted or leveled not sure which. When driving over rough roads or hitting a bump the steering wheel shakes. Is this normal or is it a alignment or suspension issue.

Sounds like your caster is off. If you have a lift, you may want to get aftermarket UCAs to correct it

Mine does the same thing and it's a new '11 with no lift yet.
Almost like there is a tiny bit of free play in the steering, but I only notice it over a bump.

looks like you have a spacer lift to level out the rear rake

Yep spacer lift ditch that crap and buy some new shocks and coils and it should ride better.

I did notice the camber being off. Can that be fixed with an alignment?

I would honestly take it off and either run stock or upgrade and do it right. By the looks of your stance, your tires could lose a lot of tread life, fast.

Do it you'll love it. I just put my mine on Tuesday, this week. Couldn't be happier. Check out DownSouth Motorsports if you do. They had the best prices that I could find plus they give a discount to TW members.
