    Everytime I go over a sharp bump or something, i feel a weird disengagement from my front wheels and the steering column. I cant really describe it better than that. I am planning on purchasing the 5100s when they are available all the way around. Hopefully that helps. I got under the truck to take a look at the ball joints and the cv boots and well the cv boots arent torn. To be honest, i dont know a damn thing about the ball joints to make a educated statement it just sounded good to say lol. Ball joints....

    If your shocks are shot, when you go over a bump the truck will bounce around a lot, because the shocks aren't doing their job to dampen the sudden bumps in the road. When you go over rough road does the ride feel real bouncy?

    im going to have to say it bounces around but not to that point. I will just replace them all and go from there. Question,, if my ball joints are bad what would i notice happening in that case...
