While traveling on the highway at 65 miles per hr if I hit a bump or the spaces on the road by overpasses( the space between the regular road and the overpass) the whole front-end of the truck vibrates to the extent that I loose control of the truck not being able to steer of slow down (using the breaks) due to the severe vibrations( I researched this and in my research they refer to this as the death wobble. I think that this is a problem that needs attention before people are killed due to this well known defect known by Dodge as they have changed certain parts known to cause this so called death wobble. Please advise if anything can be done to remedy this dangerously deadly problem.

Brake pedal is so loose it can cover the gas pedal. Dodge part 55366 032A/C not available and discontinued..bushing kit 68079239aa was install in Oct 2011. Still has problem. Dealership said no parts available and I should get at the junk yard. So they taped it up with electrical tape that did not work.
