08 F-350 DEATH WOBBLE

Hey guys, my buddy has an 08 f-350 crew short bed with a 3" rough county kit. It shakes terrible when you hit a bump. Almost to where you need to keep both hands on the steering wheel. He has the RC coils and trac bar. What does he need to do to get rid of this??? Upgrade to better system? Alignment cams? Thanks

If it didn't come with a drop radius arm bracket you need cams!
Dual steering stabilizers also are a good idea.
There is a company that claims their track bar will cure this ...but Castor has to be correct first then if that doesn't get rid of all maybe the bar would help??

If there is nothing else included in the kit then I agree that it needs caster cams.
Also check the trac bar torque, make sure it is to spec.

Tell him to watch the trac bar....another member on here had his break at the weld.

Thanks both you guys. He already ordered cams that should be in tomorrow. I guess hes going to have to get steering stabalizers as well. Ill let him know about the icon adjustable trac bar dan. I told him rough country is garbage. Thanks!
