'12 Crew Cab Long bed road vibration and death wobble
'12 truck, fully stock 18000 before trip 23000 now.
First question is anyone with the crew cab and long bed when driving on concrete roads (not asphalt covered) seels really rough. The vibration was up and down so it was like the little bump every 10ft or however they pour the slab was being amplified and it was to the point where it was uncofortable riding in the truck. This was mostly on roads in Arkansas, Missouri and Iowa, felt it a little in Texas and Nebraska.
Second one is before the long roadtrip over christmas break I felt the shaking above I was having issues with the death wobble. I would hit a bump and then the standard shaking all over and had to slam on the brakes to regain control. Took it to the get tires balnced (didnt help), Ford balanced the tires and such and it helped some and went away for a couple weeks (also i might not have driven on the freeway much at the time) then Ford replaced the steering damper and everything felt good.
However now that the road trip is done the truck is death wobbling again.
I feel a slight pop or something loose in the steering I think.
Do yall think these might be connected and what all should I try, tell the dealer to check out?
