Re: 65 to 87 front disk swap BAD wobble when braking

lift the truck so the front wheels are off the ground.

Grab the tire and put your hands at the 3 and 9 o clock positions. Shake the wheel side to side. if you feel any play, or movment, you likely have bad tie rod ends.

grab the wheel at the 12 and 6 o clock positions, and do the same. Any play here may indicate bad bearings.

grab a long 2x4 or prybar and stick under the wheel. (it helps to have a helper here) lift the wheel and check for movement at the ball joints. If you have up/down movement, ball joints are worn out.
