Thumbs up good luck with the dually

leave the shimmy alone it will remind you that your doing 80 mph and thats enough in this area maybe in corn country thats a good speed but the roads and the ditches trees and all those other ouch items can add up or kill you slow down and enjoy the ride tommorrow will be waiting for you

Welcome.

As for the shimmy get your tires checked first. If you bought your truck offa lot you don't know how log it has sat and it could have developed flat spots on the tire(s). Just a tohught. The only shop I really know of and trust is in Plastow. Grappone in Concord has been good to me, haven't done a whole lot with them tho. The other Ford service dept. I trust is Starky in York ME.

I like David Ford in Keene NH. They work on our fleet and do a very nice job.
