Ram 2500

  • 86,000 miles


Between 65 mph and 75 mph, there is a "speed wobble" which in April 2015 caused the right front tire to explode and shred (damaging the right front wheel well and ripping out the ABS harness). Feb 2016 this "speed wobble" which has been present since purchase (Sept 2014) has finally caused the steering box to be faulty through the rapid back and forth action of the pitman arm via lower steering linkage. Thus causing the steering box to rapidly leak fluid which reduces power steering capability to zero, and causes hydro-assist braking to have zero functionality. If the power steering fluid reservoir is not filled every 30 min of drive-time, all functionality of the power steering and hydro-assist braking is lost. This "speed wobble" is a known issue with the style of steering linkage that is installed oem on 2003-2008 Ram 2500/3500 my's, which is neither acceptable nor sustainable.

Reference the below complaint, and others: Date complaint filed: 03/02/2015 component(s): Power train, suspension date of incident: 10/01/2014 NHTSA id number: 10691476 driving approximately 50 mph on winding two lane country road, while executing curve to right, after passing over a slight bump in the road, front suspension entered what is commonly called a " death wobble". steering quickly became ineffective, braking was diminished due to loss of firm contact between front tires and road surface. Wobble is regenerative in that it continues to get worse until vehicle speed is reduced to 15-20 mph. I was unable to precisely control direction of travel, crossing into oncoming lane before reducing speed enough to regain control. Vehicle shakes so bad as to dislodge items from the dash and console pockets. This event repeated several times at a particular spot on my way to work, where there was an irregularity in the roadway on a straight section of paved two lane road. Behavior was the same as described above. The last even was while pulling a twenty two foot trailer on a major interstate, while negotiating a right hand curve on a down hill merge lane at freeway speed of approximately 60-65 mph. Again I was unable to maintain my lane of travel and a crash would have resulted if any other traffic had been near me! definitely a safety issue! local dealership assured me a new steering damper would cure the problem. (it didn't) I eventually fixed the problem myself by researching what other owners had done online (there is a lot of info on this issue!), and replacing the pitman arm, drag link, tiered, and adding a steering shaft stiffening brace. The drag link, tiered and tiered ends were a mopar part kit. Much heavier construction than the original part. Response to a known issue? this issue makes the truck nearly un drivable.

I have owned this truck from day one. 2007 Ram 2500 4X4 quad cab 5.9. 50,000 miles. Truck has been pulling to the right for a while. I took vehicle in for alignment at dealership. They set it to specs. Brought it back about 40 days later to realign, still pulling to the right. Service advisor said that I needed to buy an offset ball joint in order for them to get more adjustment and to correct alignment at a cost of $622. Said that this is common problem. I called & emailed Dodge/Chrysler asking why I would have to buy a part to correct a stock factory item. They called dealership to verify problem and told me what the dealership said it needed and that was all. Consumer shouldn't have to buy aftermarket parts to fix a stock item.

The contact owns a 2007 Dodge Ram 2500. The contact stated that both the front driver and passenger side brakes would smoke excessively. The first time the failure occurred, the contact took the vehicle to the dealer and was told that the calibers would seize and create the smoking. The calibers were replaced but the failure persisted. The dealer then replaced the rotors but the repair did not correct the problem. The vehicle had not been taken back to the dealer. The failure mileage was 120,000 and the current mileage was 122,000.
