05 feed pickup gets front end work

Recommended Posts

These are all very common issues with this model truck. I had to do all of my front end around 115,000 miles. My truck had the death wobble and the whole nine.

My truck is pretty tight, at 74K miles. I do a lot of dirt road driving and towing, and normally my front axle is at or above GAWR, never below 90% loaded. I am currently planning to go thru the front end next spring, I will have about 80K miles on the front end and that's pretty decent, some get 40K and some get 150K.

I had to replace the ball joints at 64.000 the left one was bad so I did both of them. I have a 100gal fuel tank behind the cab so I think this help out by having the extra weight in front.

My 05;s ball joints were shot at around 40k, I put Carli joints in it so I will never have to worry about them again.Never had an issue with my 02 ball joints or axle u-joints even with the extra weight from the ranch hand bumper. mostly country road and bad pavement miles for 9 years and 140K miles. The rest of the steering is a different story though.:wow:

Maybe it has a lot to do with driving around the pot holes, opposed dot seeing them and driving straight through them, thinking oops. that'll hurt:banghead:
