    my 1978 ford f150 is having violent front end shakes when we hit the brakes, we replaced the calipers and master cylinders and it stopped it when applying the brakes, now it does it when i reach random speeds, ive been told to rotate my tires, replace tie rod ends, sway bar and to have it aligned, does anyone know of any other possibility, i want to get it fixed and get my baby back on the road

    i would have a good front end shop check it out and decide who is going to fix what....it would be worth the fee for you to only replace what you need to

    HAVE YOU CHECKED THE TRACK BAR? THIS STABLIZES THE FRONT AXLE IN SIDE TO SIDE MOTION!

    If no parts worn out make sure your wheels aren’t caked with mud on the inside of the wheels that would throw off the wheel balance and make sure you don’t have a bad tire.
