What else to check

I have a bad steering wobble, look out the window and it looks like the wheel is gonna come off. I have fitted new radius arm bushes, checked and re-packed the bearings, fitted new stub axels, had the wheels balanced (lost 6oz last time out). Steer to the left when standing front end goes to the right, brake and truck is all over the road, ball joints ect look ok to me

pan hard looked good but took it out anyway, the metal center tubes had seperated from the rubber and putting a long bar in there made for alot of movement. holes and bolts are fine, will get new bolts tho to be on the safe side. anyone know the size of the nut on the drop arm, biggest i have is 35mm and its a bit small (truck is a 94) small amount of play.

Last resort = Is it the rim? I had one do that cause a lug nut got loose and chewed up the rim. Oblonged the lug hole. Switched to the spare and it was fine.

Last I heard it wasn't... they seem to be letting me go and I'm not a member... I think they might come up with a fee though.

After a few phone conversations and a few emails, it has been decided that there will be no fee for this weekend.
Looks like we're all set.
