2009 only 300 miles shudder on take off

Just picked up a 2009 6.4 Lariat 4x4..It seems to shudder a bit when I take off.. I ran the truck in 4 wheel drive [just to make sure it was operational],and it seemed to get better. I have had three 6.0 trucks and never noticed the shudder.Hell this one is so quiet you can hear and feel almost anything.. Any experience out there with this ??

Some people are having trouble with the steering boxes.

It sounds like a rear end shudder.. The front end is quiet

I'm fairly certain its the ****ty stock tires or axle wrap. Mine does it too.

My '09 has done it as well,but only a couple times in the two weks I have owned it. I'm talking about the truck "shaking" on take off. Wasn't able to tell what it was. or get it to do it again. One time it was really bad.

I believe it is mainly due to the long springs but the truck needs some rear end stabilization to prevent the shuddering your talking about. They are especially bad when towing a heavy load and applying a lot of power.


Axle wrap has been shown to happen on these trucks by someone's video they made.

All my touring photos. (except the two massive trips in 2011-soon to be posted eventually)
