Default Road walking

I just bought a 86 ford bronco with a 6in lift and 35in super swamper boggers and it road walks so bad you can't go over 30 mph. Is there anything I can do to stop this or do I need just buy some all terrains to put on it?

If it is that bad then it is more than likely not your tires, but instead something in your steering components.

what is this road walking you speak of, is it walking or more of a jog, full out run?

Walk on the left, facing traffic

I'm guessing one tire is not pointed in the same direction as the others.

"road walking" is not a term used to describe handling

i generally walk on sidewalks where i have a chance to jump out of the way should someone karreen out of control with a shotty 4x4

if the vehicle death wobbles, pulls, shimmies, or leads, that is a more definable term leading to more accurate diagnosis
