I own a 2005 Ford F-250 crew cab 4X4 long bed truck all stock. When driving at speeds above 55 miles per hour I experience violent shaking from the front end which is called death wobble after doing research. Ford says that there is nothing wrong with the truck and that it is fine. The wobble only stops when my speed is decreased under 40 mph or so. When this happens the truck is extremely hard to control and requires you to slam on the brakes at high speeds. I have founds hundreds of people online with the same problem with the 05-06 Super Duty trucks. This has happened to me dozens of times and I'm tired of it. I put a larger size tire all the way around and it didn't help any.

In driving my Ford F-250 pick-up, I have experiences severe vibrations/oscillations at high (over 60mph) speeds. This occurs when the truck runs over a small imperfection in the road. These oscillations are quite severe - forcing emergency leave change/loss of control. When the truck slows down to about 40, the oscillations cease. This shaking is so severe it has damaged the paint on the hood due to the hood sloshing back and forth. It is definitely life-threatening. The Ford dealer is at a loss, they do not know what to do.

  • 18,000 miles
The contact owns a 2005 Ford F-250. While driving 65 mph, the vehicle shook violently and became difficult to steer after driving over a bump in the road. The contact stated that it was not a normal front end shake and continued driving home at a lower rate of speed. The dealer rotated the tires, but that did not correct the failure. The manufacturer advised her to call NHTSA and to take the vehicle back to the dealer. The current mileage was 30,400 and failure mileage was 18,000.
