Ram 2500 SLT Cummings 6.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 86,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I bought this truck with 80,000 plus miles. The first time I put on the interstate at 70 plus MPH and hit the "right" kind of bump the front end went wild ( as in Death Wobble ) the only way it quit was to slow to less than 30 MPH.

I installed new shocks, replaced two very slightly worn ball joints (did not change anything!)

I lowered the front end back to original (2")and install original size tires ( 285-265)

The Death Wobble is gone for now but I expect it to come back. The front end is just not as solid when hitting bumps as other vehicles that I drive or have owned.

I have seen some strengthening kits on the internet but have not seen feedback so I am dubious of the fixes.

Ram 2500 SLT 6.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 59,897 miles

I bought the 2010 Dodge Ram 2500 about 7 months ago used and still under power train warranty. I had purchased an extended warranty just In case. Even though I bought the extended warranty it doesn't matter, No one can seem to fix my dreaded death wobble. After $300 in deductibles and still no fix, not to mention weeks on end without my truck. They have changed all the ball joints, damper, track bar and tie rods. Anytime I drive over 60mph and hit a slight bump or crack in the road the truck shakes down the road like I'm a DWI candidate.

It is very dangerous and I fear for the lives of my little ones or anyone else on the road. It will stop as you decrease speed to 45 or under it seems. I feel very uncomfortable driving the vehicle with my kids in the truck. You never know what to expect. I love my truck and certainly can't afford to replace it at this time, so I need my truck fixed for the safety of everyone around me.

Please help me in the right direction because the Dodge Dealer certainly can not

Ram 2500 SLT 6.7L Cummins

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,700 miles

I was driving with my wife on the highway when I hit a bump in the road doing about 70 mph, instantly the whole vehicle started to shake and wobble, I could hardly hold the steering wheel it was so bad (almost losing control) I instantly let off the gas and let it slow down to around 35 or 40 mph at which point it stopped. it happened 3 times in one day, seems like it is getting worse. I left it at the dodge dealer today to make sure nothing was damaged because of the incidents with the wobble. it had the tie rod recall done on it last year.

I want it fixed and would appreciate anyone's input as to what they did to fix theirs with aftermarket parts. I cant wait for Chrysler to fix it, I might die in a car accident because of the death wobble.
