Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

I've only owned the truck for about 8 months at this time. About 1 month ago I experienced what my research has shown to be the Dodge Death Wobble, This is where one of the front wheels hits a bump in the road at freeway speed and the front end oscillates violently and will not stop without slowing the vehicle down and radically moving the steering wheel from center (straight line). If left to "wobble" it seems that the vehicle would shake itself to death!! Maybe even break a steering/suspension component. I did try installing the enhanced brace that ties the sway bar mounts/anchor points to a new bearing supporting an extension on the pittman arm shaft and I also had the front end aligned and tires balanced to no avail, though the brace kit seemed to help. I like the truck and would be very grateful to be pointed to or find a solution to this problem. So insights are appreciatedl
