Check all your bolts to make sure they are tight. What condition are the trunnion and wheel bearings in?

How much caster and toe are you running?

Caster is difficult to adjust with leaf springs but can make a big difference with steering wobble.

I would also check your bj's, tie rod ends, and the pitman arm. Those could cause DW

How's the ware on your tire? Tie rod in order? all TRE are good and greased? Check ALL bolts making sure they're all tight. My steering box was loose and it caused DW around 50mph on my rig...wheel balanced?

when i bent my tie rod wheeling aprx 500mi from home, the drive back wore my fronts out badly. I got DW from it. My steering box caused it the first time tho, after I had fawked with the suspension and lifted it. Also check your drag link. make sure nothing is bent. SFA w/leafs is stupid simple usually..

It uses trunion bearings on the knuckle ball. But the force is on a bearing not a ball joint. The knuckle ball does nothing except enclose the birfield so it can run encased in grease instead of open to the elements. Otherwise it acts as the "C knuckle".
