So, does it feel any different? I wonder why he said your new shocks are bad? Does he get a commission off of Monomax shocks? I find it difficult to believe the shocks are the cause.

I still get a small amount of wobble at that speed, I'm not buying into the shock theory ( he said they were junk, not that they were bad ) the charge for all 4 shocks =428.00 labor=120.00 . My train of thought is if it is the shocks, the dw would still continue when I shift to neutral. I contacted Rob (maxtorq) about transmission work to maybe solve this prob.

I agree with you, if you are in neutral it should not change. Did Rob seem to think that the tranny may be suspect?

Thumbs up dw

No he did not, but the torq converter came up on this thread. The motor mounts are good and the drive line checks out. Getting back to the tranny issue, if the torq converter is bad, the tranny has to come out and that would be a good time to have some work done to it. Have to wait until Rob makes some recommendations . Looking into getting wider rims for that size of tires also. Something has got to fix this situation.

I agree. That DW needs to be fixed. Since the front end checks out have you tried locking out O/D just for grins and giggles? That will tell you if it is O/D related or not.

Make sure to check your tires for lumps, they may be subtle.

Also, check the inside of the rims for dirt or mud.

Check the brakes for packed mud/dirt in the rotors/drums.

I did have some time ago. My converter was slipping only when it went into O/D. Mine got to where I could not use more that 1/2 throttle or the truck would jump up and down real bad. I bought a Goerend tranny with a triple disk converter and the problem went away. That was probably 100k miles ago.

MnTom, BINGO the wobble stopped, one would think all the times that I had it at the dealers they would have figured it out? Kudos to you! Any suggestions or contact maxtorq?
Thanks
