Got the chains on! took it for a test drive up and down my street and this thing flies! Its a smooth ride up until you get in 6th, then you get the death wobble affraid  its sorta scary, any way to fix that and anybody know what causes it? The steering sucks but i figured it would anyway, but other than that its great! i cant wait to put a video out there, couldnt last night it was dark but itll be up soon! stay tuned guys!

Well it's not as comfortable I leave mine free just cause it only stabilizes it more to not feel scary when you lock it

Ahh, you have entered the phase of "I have a fast mower". Now you need to do all the things to make it safe to drive, and not break. Brakes, steering, frame, tie rods, etc...

Pivot should not cause wobble, all of ours pivot, and we can take our hands off the wheel at 45mph.

Steering geometry is the main cause.  Loose tie rods and steering box doesn't help. Stock steering is only good up to 20mph.

Google search images for caster, camber, and toe.   Yours has way too much camber, and no caster.  Best way to fix it is to build a new front axle, with 5 to 10 degrees postive caster, 0 toe, 0 camber.  Or you could cut and reattach your spindle mounts at the correct angles, and bent spindles to 90 degrees to match.

Better steering would help. Tighter joints. Maybe a steering stabilizer. Lol

Yesterday i installed the underglow under my tractor, and in the grille. i also purchased an ammo box from my local sporting goods store, and it seemed too big to mount between my legs so i had to think outside the box... so i figured i could mount it in the back and it would open like a jeep warnglers back hatch door. so i did. heres the pics
