Seriously jumpy steering
I started building a truck to play around in. It is a 77 F-150 4x4. I put a skyjacker 9" suspension lift with leaf springs. After installing the lift I have encountered 2 problems. The first problem, which I am most worried about, is that the steering seems to jump pretty badly. If the curvature of the road changes left or right, the steering pulls that way really bad but it happens really quickly. I know that the track bar is too short. Could that be the problem? I know that big trucks tend to jump around a little, but this is a lot more then any other big truck that Ive ever driven. I drove it before the lift and it didnt jump like that. Another problem that occured is that the brakes need pumping every time i go to stop. I have bleed the brakes a few times but it still does the same thing. I am thinking master cylinder, but I could be wrong of course. Would not installing the longer brake lines when putting on such a big lift cause this? There are no leaks anywhere in the lines, and they seemed long enough without replacing them with the braided ones that I got. Any tips, ideas or suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading my post and I hope to get some idea of how to fix my problems.
