Crazy wobble / shaking

What causes a shake and wobble on. These trucks? I've been having bad wobble when i hit some bumps and it's scary what causes it and how to fix it? I took it in and they replaced the track bar but still have it again !!!

mine was caused by upper and lower ball joints, on the ball joints their was a strange tire wear on the inside part of the tire, over inflated tires, steering dampener that was resting on the steering drag linkage also check ailment

issue being raised on several sites

The reported problem seems to be coming up with more frequency. There is a you tube video about the "death wobble".

There a couple of factors that can contribute to the issue: caster; steering dampner; unbalanced or worn tires. I haven't heard of the dealerships addressing this issue in a TSB.

You may want to return to the dealership, report the issue and have the caster or alignment checked. The next step may be to address the steering dampner not being properly adjusted.

Please reply with your resolution.

I had it bad on my 08. Extremely disappointed to hear that they didn't fix the problem yet. Please let us know what they do for you. How many miles did you have till it started showing up?

We have had two 2011 trucks at the dealer were I work have this problem, first ford was saying that some of the steering dampers were contaminated in production causing this shake, but the first truck there they couldnt find the cause after replacing numerous different front end parts on it, so ford sent a complete front axle assembly and the truck has had no problems since and the second one they replaced the radius arms and that truck has been working fine since then as well and for both trucks we could duplicate the shake everytime on this one section of road before the repair but not after. The old front end from the first one and the radius arms from the second one were both sent directly to the head engineers for the superduty at ford and they were gonna look into it.

It seems like it is the radius arm bushings that have been causing it, cause on the first truck that was about the only thing they hadn't replaced when ford told us they were sending us a complete front end, and on the second one they had only replaced the steering shock which alone didn't fix it but the new radius arms and bushings have solved it. Yours might be different though cause the first one was a f350 srw fx4 and the second a f250 srw 4x4

That sucks! The Dodge death wobble was the whole reason I got rid of my 07.5 Ram 3500 and got the 2011 6.7, now Ford has it too?
Keep us updated on the status of your rig.
