    Hey whatsup guys?
    Ok so I got a Tacoma about a year ago and I have been saving up to get a lift and tires and wheels,
    so I went 2 days ago and dropped my truck off to have a 3" lift installed along with 18" moto metal rims and 33" Toyota open country m/t tires.
    It look sick as ever, however when I drive it at any kind of speed and hit a pothole of any type my truck seems to jump maybe 2 feet around in the lane.
    Also my steering seems to be very sensitive on the freeway doing anything over 70 mph,
    what would be the cause of this?
    Do I need to get steering stabalizers?

    Help me out please

    thanks guys.

    did you get an alignment? sounds like the problem

    or if you did get an alignment and kept the stock upper control arms your caster may be off. usually causes it to be squirrely

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    This is probably due to it being out of alignment spec from the lift. If thats the case, some aftermarket UCAs(upper control arms) would solve this issue by getting the caster back in spec.

    if you did not get it aligned, get it aligned asap. if they cannot align it back to or near factory specs you need aftermarket upper control arms to correct this issue
