Default Interstate blowout!

Had this blowout last year on I-76 at 75mph. I had a huge pucker factor. My butt cheeks ate the seat. Blowout was on the Passenger front tire. I kept it under control, barely.

Narrowed it down to the T-bars. The previous owner had the driver side T-bar cranked all the way up and the passenger side was at stock height (I assume). It put a lot of stress on the passenger side. The tires had weird scallops on them. I couldn't figure it out. Replaced shocks, rotated tires and got an alignment, all to have it blow and to find out it was the T-bars. The tires still had about 30% tread on them.
