    I have Nito grapplers on my Taco and I feel like the truck is all over the road. Is there a steering stabilizer for the 05 are is there another fix.

    Alignment needs to be checked. Also look for the tire pressure and make sure it's not out of whack. Do you have a lift on it?

    Yes an alignment has been done it just feels like the tires grip everything and pull the truck around.

    I can't Post up my alignment numbers I'm in Afghanistan. This is the first truck I've put these tires on. Maybe it is just a different feel then I’m use to.

    I had the same tires, and mine didn't do what you're explaining. My first guess would be that your alignment wasn't set to the correct numbers. I would take the truck back to the shop and make them do it until it is right.

    And Thankyou for your service! Hope you're all doing well out there!

    Sounds like your lifted, and using OEM UCA's. Wandering is one of the side effects of lifting, without adding more caster. Steering stabalizers help for steering kick back. not tracking. Also, they dont work well if at all, on Rack & Pinion systems, like the Tacoma has.
