    I had the same problem with my 1986 k30 4x4. It turned out to just be the steering stabilizer was bad. I found this out after I hit a set of railroad tracks at 60 and the front end started shaking so bad I just about lost control of it. I would suggest trying to replace that.<p>Good luck

    By bobs up and down do you mean the steering wheel is moving back and forth. Or is the front end shaking back and forth. Does it only do this while braking? It sounds like you have a warped brake rotor or drum. Keep use informed.

    update on breaking problem had the roters turned and this solved the problem also found a bad wheel bearing on one side and spinning races in the other hub the lugs are hard to seat on these chev 4/4s sure rides better now
