Re: Dangerous wheel shimmy after hitting a large bump

8 degrees of caster is a bit excessive, and the over length shackles will be compounding the problem. What
size tires you running? Are you running a shackle reverse? Do you have/ what kind of shape is your steering
stabilizer in? Sounds like a clear case of death wobble to me. You could try to shim out some of the caster,
but that may create pinion angle problems. I`m only running 4 degrees of caster with a S/R on my 44 and
haven`t expierenced any problems.
