Death wobble fix?

Anyone know if these will fit an '11+? They list 05-10 and tech support said they will not recommend them unless they list it for 11

I have been cursed with the death wobble and through some research have decided this might be my best bet for trying to fix it. Anyone else got a good solution to this other wise??? New shocks and dual stabilizers will be next on the list if this does not fit.

If everything is tight and wheels and tires are balanced then ya it's a great thing to do and easy and your going to want it set at ~3 degrees pos castor, no matter if the tire shop says it should only Have 1. Insist on 3
Check the factory stabilizer and don't get sucked into people saying it's the track bar and to get a anti wobble trac bar. That's not the fix

So the radius control arms are the same on a 10 and an 11? I called BD and they would not tell me anything other than what the computer screen said to them. Just wanna make sure these will fit before I order them up.

On my 2012 DRW F350, I got it professionally aligned to specs(it needed toe in), added HD dampener and set fronts at 60/65psi. Zero issues after that.

Just get castor shims and correct alignment the majority of wobbles is from the lack of castor in these trucks.

I had death wobble on my 2013 F350 and it went away all by itself. Mind you, I was having a deathwobble at 3000 miles and was running just an OEM setup.

Anything you put on that changes the alignment (if you're having a deathwobble issue) won't hurt. It's caused by a lack of castor as CT P said. I would be more inclined to get a BD adjustable track bar...
