The front end of my 2007.5 Dodge Ram 3500 will shake violently when you hit a bump in the road. Its happened numerous times and seems to be worse at higher speeds.the only way to stop it is to slow down quickly.not to safe when on a major highway. Gets a lot worse if I am pulling a trailer and feel that sooner or later a accident will happen. Its nicknamed the death wobble. And has been going on for years with numerous year Dodge Ram. Just do a internet search on the subject. Dodge knows about it but is not correcting the problem.

While driving at highway speeds (65mph or greater) my 2007 Dodge Ram 3500 will suddenly begin to shake violently after an uneven surface in the road is struck. This has happened several times over the course of the past 2 years. The only "fix" action is to slow the vehicle by releasing the gas pedal and applying the brake. I have taken the vehicle into the dealer to have it inspected for a safety recall involving the steering and was told there was nothing wrong. I took the vehicle into a second dealership after this last episode of "death wobble" and was told that the tie rods, and steering dampening shock needed to be replaced. The vehicle is still under warranty and the dealership is in the process of ordering the parts to replace the tie rods and steering dampening shock. For information purpose, the vehicle is located in germany and is driven on autobahn's with highway speeds greater than the U.S.

I also experienced the horrible death wobble of the front suspension at a speed of 65mph. The vehicle started shaking out of control after I crossed over an expantion joint at the start of a bridge and was increasing in the velocity of the shaking. The vehicle was uncontrollable during the wobble I almost lost control. I reduced my speed by releasing the gas pedal without applying the breaks and it settled down at 30 mph. This was extremely dangerous and could have cause death or serious injury.

I have had a 03 Ram 2500, 04 Ram 3500, and 07 Ram 3500. I have experienced a death wobble numerous times with each vehicle at all highway speeds after hitting pot holes and bumps. It violently shakes the whole truck until you reduce the speed to 30-40 mph. It feels like the truck will lose control and shake off the road. I have heard numerous complaints and feel this issue needs to be addressed by Chrysler before someone gets hurt or killed. I have taken each truck into the dealership three times to be looked at and they said nothing was wrong with it.
