My recommendation would be to redo the front struts with a Bilstein or an eibach. It’s very possible that the bad angles already whiped out the cv’s (front diff) rough country products are hit and miss and most likely you have a miss. The cheap tires reflect the cheap leveling kit installed and everyone knows when you skimp out it’s going to cost more dollars later. It’s possible the dealer may credit you back or help with labor costs as the previous owner made all the changes and the dealer let it ride like that. (I’m not sure if it was bought as is or not)

Thanks for the replies guys. A couple of you recommended the Ready Lift 4" lift. Why that one in particular, and why 4" instead of 3"? That kit looks like it uses puck spacers, but you guys seem to hint that those are no good. Would replacing all 4 shocks with Bilsteins be a better option? Does anything need to be done with the springs?

I bought new tires because the Haida's are apparently scalloped. Something obviously caused that, but it happened regardless, so I need new tires anyway. My current plan is to get those mounted and road force balanced and see what happens. From there, I'll follow whatever recommendations you all have, and if that's putting the Ready Lift kit in or some other kit, that's what I'll do.

The ********* part to all of this is I'm new to buying vehicles at a dealer, I've never had a new (3 years is way new to me) vehicle, and I wanted to get a newish vehicle, at $40k, so I wouldn't have to work on it for a long time. This is the opposite of that, lol. The dealer offered a 30 day warranty, so I dropped it off for the wobble and they said it was tires, and they don't warranty tires. I mentioned the ride and they never got back to me. Like any dealer that offers a warranty, they're skirting around actually doing anything. Seems I'm on my own at this point. Oh well.
