DO WHEEL BEARINGS. I am also a teenager with one of these trucks, a 1984 6.9 idi non turbo, straight piped, and i neglected to do simple maintanence for a long time such as wheel bearings, greasing ball joints, tie rods, etc, and i ended up stuck 6 hrs from home on a road trip with a siezed wheel bearing. had to get towed home, new hub and rotor, etc. just over $600 in the end. bought the bearings for the other side for 30 bucks and did it in about 2 hrs on the first try. Save yourself the trouble of towing, etc. also, mine is straight piped as well and i think in sounds great. 25k miles in a year and half all over new england and no trouble, just keep an eye out for cops and lay off the gas if you see one
