    So the other morning i was on my way to work at 430 am and i was going around a corner and a man hole cover was sticking up at about a 30 degree angle, swerved and completely nailed it with my front right tire..soo i keep on going to work. noticed that when i go over 30 my truck starts to shake, over 40 it gets worse..and so on. so i thought it was maybe my tire was off balence, so i checked if any weights were gone..but they were all still there. so i rotated the tire to the rear to make sure it wasn't the tire. soo now i have noise whenever i brake or gas that sounds like something is loose, or is slipping forward and backwards.. any thoughts? i checked my ifs on the right side, and it seems all fine and tight.. kind of out of ideas now. anything would help:confused:

    Check the tire it hit for any bumps.

    Odds are, the rim is tweaked, the tire has a broken belt, and your suspension sustained some damage. Take it in and have it inspected, tires balanced and aligned to find out. Otherwise, you will only find obvious damage.

    nope not tire. rim is fine, no cracks or dents no weights missing. brake is fine, rotated it freely. not my allienment, its rotating up and down not side to side. It just sounds like a big part of my ifs is loose and its moving back when i give it gas, and forward when i brake..

    Could have loosened the LCA bolt. Have you had it re-aligned? Something might have bent from the impact. Proper alignment can't be checked visually. Tell the alignment shop what happened so they actually look to see if anything is bent and don't just try to realign something that might be bent.

    Can you shake the wheel without moving the truck, indicating a bearing issue?

    I doubt you'll figure this out on your own, so my suggestion would be to take it in, balance the tires get it aligned and go from there. Alignment shop has probably seen this happen so get as much info as you can, that way we can all know what's going on.

    I would second what Skytower said. Also, just because it was moved to rear does not mean that the tire/rim is fine, a broken belt will still vibrate the truck.

    Damage to tires, rims, and suspension are not usually able to be seen. Just because the weights are there only means they weren't knocked off. It does not mean the rim is good.

    Balancing the bare rim will tell you if the rim has been bent. Bent=discard(especially with aluminum rims). With a known good rim, balance the suspect tire. Balance=ok. Personally, I wouldn't trust a tire that has taken a very hard hit. That's my head talking, not my wallet. My head knows best; the wallet is a cheap bastard.
