After new tires (big O AT 20"), shocks, and dampener, the wobble on my truck 95% better. Since I'm tuned into this issue now, I notice even the slightest wobble. Ford replaced the shocks and dampener. I suspect it will return as the shocks wear out again. Not sure if they replaced with the same part numbers or not?

Local Ford dealer replaced my 2011 F-350 Crew Cab short bed's factory steering dampner per a TSB (not sure) with a similar factory steering dampner today and it seems to have cured the problem after 2 hours of driving it and testing. I'll keep an eye on this board to see how others do and if it returns again.

So glad I found this thread! My 2011 f250 lariat that I paid 56,000 for shakes like a 3 dollar ten speed! Hopefully I get some resolution tomorrow when I take it in!

afacey,

I still have your truck’s details from previous messages, so shoot a PM if you’d like a follow-up.

Strokin314,

In case you missed my previous post, I can lend a hand by arranging a call from the Customer Service Manager in your area. So I can do this, please send a PM with your contact information, approximate mileage, dealer name/state, and VIN.

Cory

Thanks for the help Cory. My truck has been having the wobble off and on after having around 6,000 miles . I love my truck a lot and have taken it as my truck being too sensitive to the road but yesterday when coming home from getting my son it did it as usual but this time I had no way to pull to the side of the road and my 3 year old son was so scared that he stop breathing for a split second. It was not good and now he doesnt want to have anything to do with my truck. I should have had it checked a long time ago but when it first happened I couldn't find a post at all pertaining to this problem. I bought my truck the day it parked on the lot. Mine was one that had to go in for a recalibration of the computer to offer my truck with more hp. I moved to ford in 2007 from gmc and love the toughness of ford( won't talk about 6.0!) but my 2011 is the best truck I have ever owned and I would hate to rethink my decision for ford but if you could have seen the fear in my sons face then you would surely understand! If they can't fix it then I will be in a duramax.

I have the same intermittent problem with the "front end bounce" on my truck.
I took it to the dealer with about 5300 miles for this problem. I went for some test rides in my truck and one of theirs but the problem did not happen on the test rides. The tech said they contacted a Ford engineer and did what he said. The outcome was nothing was changed or done to the truck. The dealer said the truck is safe!!!
I showed them a video I took of the shaking, via my camera and I also sent them e-mails. No help. The service people said they did not get the e-mail and never responded that they got it!! I don't think they wanted to acknowledge the video or the problem. Posted it on You Tube "Ford F250 Shaking" Ford F250 Shaking - YouTube
The truck still does this shake intermittently and does not seem to be solid on the road when driven at highway speeds.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

This is so crazy that it's hard for me to understand why they are not acknowledging it! I almost wrecked the other day and my son will no longer get in my truck with excitement. He is scared shi&$@"$ now! After reading other forums I went to check for high and low spots in tread wear. I have it pretty good! Should never have something like this on a 2011 ford f250. I don't even pull or trailer much at all! My company has a fleet of 2011 silverados with duramax and have had no problems at all! Ford is slowly losing me! If I don't get results soon then I am filing a lawsuit against ford for a reimbursement of what I paid for my truck. ITS NOT SAFE!

Look into the "Lemon Law" in your state. If you keep taking it into the dealer (and documenting your complaint), in general they have to either fix it or buy it back. With a lawsuit, you likely will not get your costs paid, so your lawyer will end up with the back axle, a couple tires, and a door or two.

To folks like "TheTimeLord" who post videos to YouTube etc, be sure to include the model year in the title of your video and put in as much detail as you can (like, perhaps, your dealer's name and location) in the description. Just a thought.

Good luck,

- Don

Try hitting a dip in the road when you are in a slight left turn around 45 to 50 mph. That would always start mine to bouncing. This is also mentioned in the info the dealer showed me from Ford.

I wasn't able to do this. A lot of traffic; this is LA!
Note, they had the truck for a week. I let the dealer keep it for as long as they needed it.

jeffkrgutility, the dealer didn't share much information with me except the tech said he opened a ticket with Ford engineering and followed their instructions.

Thanks for the suggestion deliberate.

Talked to my service manager today and he said he had heard about death wobble but not too familiar. And in the next sentence told me they have had a few 250s in for same problem that they have fixed with a new track bar! Bullsh&@!!!! I don't believe a word he is saying. And Cory if you're out there, WHAT HAPPEN? taking mine in today and dropping it off until it is fixed!

Actually track bar issues will cause this concern and historically has been the major cause on Ford trucks from my experience. Any looseness in the bushing or the ball joint will allow the axle to oscillate once movement has begun. That also applies to the radius arms and steering gear.

Well, I have been on another forum and a guy is having same problem out of his 2011 f250 and they have replaced track bar twice now with no resolution. And the they tell him to try to keep his hauling of a trailer to a minimum. This is a ford super duty! What else are they made for? Seems to be getting out of hand if you ask me.
