Steering Wheel internal vibrations

To All,

Just bought my 2nd F-250 but my first diesel, its a 2010 XLT 4X4. Every time I hit a bump or a patch of rough road, My steering wheel has internal vibrations as if its coming from the upper steering shaft. Ford Dealer could not find anything wrong with it, didn't bill though!!! Says to wait till it gets 12,000 miles then he will give me a re allignment to see if it helps. I asked if he could do it now but he states that it was on the money right now. I love the truck its awsome but the internal vibration gets on my nerves especially since I paid 42,000 for it. Help or advice is surely welcome..... Go Ford!!!

I have a similar problem. Mine has terrible vibration on high speed left hand turns, comes close to a death wobble. Took it to the dealer and they said that they couldn't get it to do it so they couldn't help me. Keep us posted if you get an answer from someone.

mor4wd - have them road force balance the tires on it.

OP - does your truck have stock wheels/tires on it?

Don't know if this is the same, but I get a helluva wobble when going through curves and hit a bump. Feels like the whole front end is hopping around. Stock rims and tires. Would putting an aftermarket twin steering stabalizer setup help? Not lifted but have two inch leveling pucks on the front. Or is this just a normal reaction?
