This is the 4th time we have had to go back to dealership and them turn us away by doing a visual inspection stating there was nothing wrong with the truck, however we cannot get an alignment because sway bar, track bar, and tie rods all needed to be repaired. Took truck back again after there was so much pooping noise and vibration from the front end that I could not take it anymore. Outer tie rods were done, and found out the track bar was cracked so a new one replaced the original one yet no record was completed of this with the dealership, only that they tightened the track bar. I am so fed up with the dealerships and Chrysler with all of this nonesense, it is really going to come down to us completely having a bad accident or something to this extent before something is done, and we stop having to pay for all the repairs to a faulty front end. Driving down the rod feeling the vibrations is very scary, and not knowing if the tires are going to come off.

Ram 2500 Power Wagon 4WD 6-cyl Diesel

  • 76,491 miles
I have been watching the news recently and saw the Jeep death wobble reports. I have the same experience and same problem with my 2006 Dodge Ram 2500. I almost got into two accidents on the high way and once my truck lost control due to the death wobble and turned 180 degrees on the highway facing oncoming traffic. But, luckily no one was hurt. I took the truck to see what the problem was and the mechanics said I have to pay a couple thousand to repair. However, the mechanic said he has seen many Jeep and Dodge have the same problem and said the company should have a recall because it is extremely dangerous and it is the manufactures fault. Due to hard economic times I can not afford to fix my truck and I am very scared for my safety and my families. So please help me in this terrible situation along with other Dodge Ram and Jeep owners. This is very common problem and can be seen all over the internet, youtube and the news. I look forward to hearing back from you and getting help.
