front end shake

lately when I drive 55 or above my truck shakes in the front end so I went to balance my wheels just to rule that out. But when I jacked my truck up I noticed there is some play in the steering in the right wheel. But in both wheels there is some up and down play as if both wheel bearings are bad. Is there anything that would these two things to happen together or are they separate fixes? Also what else should I look for?

That was my other guess since it hasnt been touched in the life of the truck (which is only 100000 miles). Would that cause the up and down play? and would i have to replace the whole arm or just the bushings?

The stock Idler arms are rebuildable but most people just replace them. 100,000mi. It's probably time for a new one and yes it would cause the play in your steering. The up and down play sounds more like your wheel bearings.

Are you getting a "shake" or a "vibration"?

It's more of a shake. I feels like the front end is moving side to side really fast if that makes any sense. If the wheel bearings went would they start making noise on their way out? That's the only thing stopping me from thinking both bearings are bad

Can't be too many things so start simple.
Rotate the tires and see if it changes or goes away.
Balance the tires.
Idler arm.
Wheel bearings.

I had the same problem with my 89 2wd.All the steering linkages were tight and had new wheel bearings.The only thing loose on mine was the steering box.I pulled of the steering dampner and tried to move it by hand in and out and there was very little resistance.And after replacing it all is well no more shaking.

I recently had to go through this. My truck needed an idler arm, pitman arm and both lower ball joints. I did all this and got an alignment and although the truck did a lot better, the tires had been beaten on with the alignment in that condition for so long they needed to be replaced. They had been rotated by the previous owner but he never took care of the alignment issues. All 4 tires turned out to be out of round. I replaced the tires and now it drives like a dream down the road. After I get shocks I'll really be in business!

Good luck figuring it all out.
