Great list! Thanks for taking the time to type that all out.

Unfortunately you just described several thousand dollars of work.

I will need new tires next year at some point, and I definitely planned on getting aligned at that time. New shocks would also be wise before I align. Have Michelin LTXs now, which I like, but 2WD traction is lacking. Was thinking Michelin LTX M/S next time.

And yes, my truck does need the steering column bearing replaced. It's a bit sloppy right now but tracks smooth on the road. Could still be wasting some fuel and tire wear there, no doubt.

The centramatic and balancemaster products look very interesting. I like the idea a lot but cost is an issue. Same for rear panhard bar kit.... $463! ouch.

I doubt my old coolant hoses and windshield are wasting fuel though, lol. There's something to be said for not messing with things that already work....

Thanks again. A great list for any HD truck owner.
