Ram 3500

  • 38,950 miles


Entered into 295N (9A) from merrill rd. Heading toward dunn avenue. As I was approaching the dames point bridge the trucks front axle began to shake and vibrate uncontrollably. Also the truck started pulling to right very hard. I pulled off into the emergency lane, turned on flashers, and placed truck in park. After I pulled wheel off, I noticed the tire had shown the inside treads were raised higher than outside treads. This is due to tread and steel belt separating. Replaced with spare under truck. Kept defective tire, because I have seen many complaints same issue same tire, and I am searching for recalls relating to the general amentrac 235/80R/17.

Ram 3500

I have been experiencing severe front end shaking/wobble when traveling at various speeds and after the most significant event occurs when traveling at highway speed and hitting a bump when steering left or right. This causes the front-end to shake violently and the steering wheel to rapidly jerk to the left/right. The only way for this to stop is to pull over and come to a complete stop and then resume driving. I have taken my truck to my personal mechanic who inspected everything and told me there was nothing noticeable that would cause the truck to do this. After some more occurrences, I took it to the Dodge dealer to get their opinion. I was told that I needed to replace the steering damper and that would solve my problem. I thought this to be rather odd due to the fact that I just had it replace within the past year due to it leaking. I was assured this would take care of the front end wobble. Well, $144 later, it was still happening. I was told next that it could be an alignment issue, so they did an alignment on the truck. That too did not resolve the problem. I spoke directly to the service manager who, after a lengthy conversation, informed me that he has seen a large number of these trucks that have the same problem and the only way to fix it is to replace a number of front end parts that end up totaling $2,370.16. I was informed that these parts are new and not oem which I couldn't even obtain anymore. I have done some research and have determined that I am not the only one who has experienced the front-end shimmy/wobble. There is vast information regarding this problem on the internet.

Ram 3500 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 36,944 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Dodge Ram. While driving less than 30 mph, the vehicle began to vibrate hard and the front driver's side wheel detached from the vehicle. The vehicle was towed to the contact's residence. The dealer stated that the wheel bearings were more than likely the cause of the failure; however, they could not assist because the vehicle was 2,000 miles out of warranty. The vehicle has not been repaired. The failure and current mileages were 36,944. Updated 04-14-09 updated 04/16/09.
