    hey guys wondering if all yoters do this? in the morning when the truck is cold but the engine is warmed up the steering vibrates a decent amount for ten minutes or so while doing 55 mph. after ten mins the steering is as smooth as it could be, let it go and the truck is perfectly aligned and not one shake or movement from the wheel. any ideas or concerns?? thanks alot

    exactly i thought of that too but i was fearing i would need an alignment. i think thats what it is tho just needs some air pressure built up

    I've heard of a chattering in the rear before with cold oil, once warmed up it's better.

    I was thinking this may be causing your problem.

    Just an idea

    Just gettin started!
    I have the same issue. Think its just flat spots in the tires from sitting overnight. As soon as the tires warm up, no issues!
