While Driving My 2017ford F350 Lariat Crew Cab 4×4 Long Bed, I Drove Over An Expansion Joint On The Highway Going At Approximately 65 Mph. Upon Hitting The Joint, The Front End Went Into A Violent Oscillation Bouncing Left And Right. The Steering Wheel Was Oscillating So Violently That It Took All That I Had To Hold It On The Road. I Had To Reduce The Speed Rapidly From 65mph To 35mph In Heavy Traffic. Luckily No One Was In My Right Lane, Or I Would Have Impacted The Side Of Their Vehicle. This Felt Like “death Wobble” As The Wheels Were Bouncing To The Left And Right When It Happened. This Is The First Time That This Vehicle Has Had This Happen. It Was Purchased New From A Dealer Lot In Kansas. Approximate Mileage Is 13,000. I Took It To The Dealer How Claimed It Was A Failed Steering Dampener. The Dealer Replace The Dampener, But The Front End Still Feels Loose And Unweighted Over Bumps On The Highway At Speeds Over 50 Mph. The Weather When It Happened Was Sunny And Clear. Traffic Was Heavy But Moving. This Incident Occurred Maryland Highway 100. This Is A Serious Manufacturer Defect That Nhtsa Needs To Look Into And Recall These Vehicles Before Someone Gets Killed.

Experience ?death Wobble? Of Front Steering At About 17,000 Miles. Truck Has About 21,000 Miles On It And I Have Owned It Since New. Truck Is Completely Stock With Original Tires, Wheels And Suspension. Last Weekend I Had The Death Wobble Happen Twice. This Happened About 10 Miles Apart While In A Construction Zone On The Freeway With No Place To Pull Off Or Room As Lanes Were Narrowed. A Small Bump Starts It, But It Takes About 2-3 Seconds To ?ramp Up? To Where The Steering Wheel Is Violently Shaking Back And Forth. Happen At A Speed Of About 58 Mph And Had To Slow Down To Under 40 To Regain Control. Tire Pressure Of Both Front Tires Has A Reading Of 63psi Which Cold Inflation Is 60. Tires Are Rotated At Oil Changes. Truck Is An Xlt Crew Cab With Long Box, Powerstroke Diesel, 4×4 With Fx4 Package And Max Gvwr 11,500. Does Have Chrome Package That Included Chrome 18? Wheels And Goodyear All Terrain Tires. Completely Stock As Taken From Dealer. My Opion Is That The Solid Front Axle Has A Flaw With Regard To Track Bar Locating The Axle Position And The Drag Link Of The Steering. Both Of These Links Are Not Exactly Parallel Or Of Equal Length. Since One Is Attach Directly To The Axle And The Other Is Attached To The Steering Arm, When The Front Axle Oscillates Going Over A Bump, The Non-parallel, Not Equal Length Links Introduce A Condition Sometime Referred To Bump Steer. This Then Starts An Oscillation Of The Steering Arm As The Truck Wish To Continue Traveling The Straight Line, It Compresses All Of The Rubber Bushings Which Then Cause The Wheel To Be Jerked/sprung Back Violently And Thus We Have The Wobble Of The Front Steering Oscillating At Frequency That Can Not Dampen Out Until Vehicle Is Slowed Down To A Point To That No Longer Supports The Natural Frequency. College Level Kinematic And Vehicle Dynamics Approach Could Solve The Problem.

Experienced ?death Wobble? Several Times When Traveling On Highways (between 65-75 Mph). This Happened Several Times – Once While Pulling A Fifth Wheel Trailer, Which Nearly Caused Accident. Dealer Installed Bar To Address Issue Several Months Ago. Today, I Experienced It Again – 5 Times In A Matter Of 60 Miles – Again On The Highway When Going Over Expansion Joints On Bridges. This Is Only Stopped When Slowed Down Significantly On Highway – Extremely Dangerous. Based On The Very Similar And Numerous Complaints On This Issue Makes Me Think A Class Action Is Warranted And Needs To Be Pursued – Since It Seems There Aren?t Appropriate Steps Being To Correct This Very Dangerous Defect. The Corrective Steps ford Has Dealers Performing Aren?t Working And This Is A Serious Safety Issue That Needs Immediate Attention.

Took The Truck To The Dealer, They Replaced The Track Bar, Sent Back, And A Week Later The Same Issue Of The “death Wobble” Happened Again.

When Traveling At Speeds Greater Than 50mph, Truck Will Randomly Respond To Going Over A Slight Bump By Beginning To Shake. The Shaking Increases To A Violent Level. The Entire Truck Shakes Violently, Especially The Front End And The Steering Wheel. The Only Way To Regain Control Of The Truck Is To Come To A Nearly Complete Stop. All Three Times This Has Happened The Truck Was On A Highway. The Last Time It Happened The Truck Was On A Bridge Crossing A River With Heavy Traffic All Around. It Is A Complete Miracle That The Surrounding Drivers Were Able To Avoid Hitting Our Truck Since The Speed Limit Was 65mph, And We Had To Slow To 22mph Before The Shaking Stopped. This First Happened In Oct 2017. The Dealership Repaired It, But It Happened Two More Times On Feb 12, 2018. The Truck Has Only 24700 Miles On It.

Started Vehicle, Placed In Reverse To Back Out Of Driveway, At End Of Driveway Stepped On Break And Did Not Stop, Pressed Hard And Stopped. Put Truck In Drive To Get Back On Driveway And Almost Hit Garage Door As Breaks Did Not Work Normally So I Pressed Emergency Break. Shut Off Truck, Restarted And Breaks Worked Fine. Thought It Was A Computer Glitch And Restart Corrected. Drove Next Several Days With No Problem, Then On Way Home From Store I Again Lost Normal Breaking And Had No Power Steering . I Was Doing Approximately 30 Miles Per Hour On A City Street. Pulled Over, Shut Off Truck And Restarted But This Time That Did Not Correct Problem. Drove About 1 Mile To ford Dealer And Turned Over For Repair. The Vehicle Only Has 17k Miles On It. They Diagnosed The Power Steering Pump To Be Bad And Replaced. I Have Not Had Problem Since The Repair. I Have About 30 Miles Since Repair. The Problem Is That I Received No Failure Or Warning Lights, Started Intermittent And If I Would Of Been Driving Other Different Conditions I Would Likely Of Been In A Serious Accident. If My Wife Was Driving She Would Of Not Been Able To Stop Or Steer The Truck. I Have Normal Strength For A 60 Year Old Man And I Could Barely Stop And Steer The Truck. If I Was Pull An Rv I Would Of Been In A Very Bad Situation. I Am Concerned That There Was No Warning And Concerned That After First Failure It Seemed To Reset Thus Assuming A Computer Issue. Seems Strange That A Mechanical Pump Failed And Then Started Working For Several Days Before Failing Again. After The First Failure That Corrected Itself, I Did Go To ford Dealer Where I Bought The Car And They Said They Were Not Aware Of Any Issues But If It Happens Again Bring The Truck In To Be Checked. Unfortunately, I Was 60miles From My Purchasing Dealer So Went To Closest ford Dealer For The Repair.

On 3 Different Occasions While Driving Approx 60mph, I Drove Over A Bump And The Steering Wheel/front End Experienced Uncontrollable Shaking, Commonly Called A ?death Wobble.? Problem Continued Until I Slowed The Truck To 10 Mph. First Time It Happened The Truck Only Had 17,000 Miles. After The 3rd Time The Dealer Replaced Steering Components. After The Repair The Truck Continued To Have Minor Problems (quick Short Wobble) But The Dealer Said That Was Part Of The Repair. On Memorial Day Weekend The Full Wobble Returned. I Dropped The Truck Off At Dealer Because It Was Too Unsafe To Drive ( I Have Teenagers And Refuse To Risk Their Lives). I Attempted To Return The Truck To ford Under The State Lemon Law. ford Refuses To Take Back The Truck But Cannot Guarantee It Is Fixed Or Safe.

While Driving Down The Highway I Hit A Dip In The Road And The Steering Wheel Started Shaking Violently. I Let Off The Gas And Slowed Down And The Shaking Stopped. I Had Approximately 10,000 Miles On The Truck. I Avoid All Bumps And Dips Now. It Has Happened 8 Or 9 Times. I Have Never Had The Truck Looked At For The Problem, Now That I Have Read About All The Other People With The Same Issue I Will Take It To The Dealer Ship. I Just Thought It Had Something To Do With The Fact That Its A Heavy Duty Suspension.

I Own A 2017fordf-350. This Truck Is Fully Stock, No Mods Of Any Kind. No Abuse. Maintenance Is Always On Time And Tires Are Always Rotated And Balanced Every 5000 Miles. In May 2018, I Was Driving Along A Straight Moderately Bumpy Road At About 40 Miles Per Hour And My Truck Went Into The Death Rattle. The Front End Shook So Hard I Almost Lost Control. I Had To Come To A Complete Stop To Get The Shaking To Stop. The Mileage Was Approximately 24,000 Miles. It Hasn’t Happened Again Until Yesterday, 10/10/18. I Was Traveling On A Newly Paved Road At 30 Mph. I Hit A Slight Bump And The Truck Went Into The Death Rattle Again. I Had To Slow Down To About 5 Mph To Regain Control Of The Vehicle. I Had About 3 Miles Til I Got Home. I Crawled At About 15 Mph With No Problems. I Stopped At The Stop Sign About 60 Feet From My Home, Started To Take Off At An Extreme Crawl And It Started Shaking Again. The Mileage Was Approximately 36,036. I Have Children And This Is Dangerous! My Kids Are Always With Me And I Can’t Risk Their Lives Because ford Hasn’t Come Up With A Solution To This Problem. Someone Needs To Make ford Fix This. It Is A Design Flaw, As I Have Come To Find Out. This Is Going To Kill Someone.

My 2017ford F350 Has Now Experienced Three Events Referred To As “death Wobble” Or Shimmy Which Causes Severe Shaking Of The Entire Truck And Especially The Steering Wheel. First Event In Bakersfield Calif Where I Hit Consecutive Bumps In The Freeway While Traveling 65 Mph. Had To Slow To Less Than 40 Mph To Get It To Stop. Second Event Was Towing My 5th Wheel Down A 6% Grade Into Verde Valley Arizona. Heavy Braking Caused The Same Death Wobble In Addition To The Truck Pulling To The Right. Speed Was 65 Mph. Third Event Was Leaving Mccarren Airport In Las Vegas Nevada Where Hitting A Freeway Bridge Transition Caused The Death Wobble Again. Truck Has Been To Local ford Dealership. Alignment Checked Ok, Tracking Bar Torque Ok, Wheels Ok, Ball Joints Ok. Brake Hose Did Not Pass Pressure Test And Was Replaced Under Warranty. Dealership Cannot Find Cause. I Sincerely Believe This Is A Design Issue Or Oem Parts Installed At Factory Were Defective At Time Of Installation. This Is My Fourth Superduty 4×4 Supercrew. My Other Three Never Had This Issue. In Investigating This Issue I Found Two Automotive Related Websites Where 35 Plus Late Model Superduty Owners Complained About This Same Problem. *tr

2017 F350 Kr Srw Lwb 21500 Miles Over The Last 1000 Miles Or So I Had Noticed A Little Shimmy In The Steering Wheel When I’d Go Over A Road Cut, A Patch, Or Expansion Joint. Well Today I Hit One At Around 70 Mph Going Straight On The Interstate And The Steering Wheel Just Went Freaking Bizerk. It Started Osculating Back And Forth Really Quick. I Tried To Just Grab It And Hold It Still To No Avail. Eased On The Brakes And Tried To Get To The Shoulder With Traffic Bearing Down On Me. At 45 Mph It Still Hadn’t Let Up.. As I Hit The Shoulder At Around 40 It Finally Quit Shaking.

On 7/22/18, My 2017 F350 (crew Cab, Long Bed, Diesel) Experienced What Is Apparently Being Called “death Wobble” 4 Times Within 20 Minutes, While Driving On Interstate I-15 North Of Salt Lake City, Ut. The Truck Had Approximately 27,800 Miles On It At The Time. In First Instance, My Speed Was About 65 Mph, And In The Following 3, It Was Between 50-60 Mph. The Section Of Highway Was Bumpy In All Cases. The Symptoms Were Extreme And Violent Vibration Coupled With Virtually Uncontrollable Steering, With The Entire Front End Of Truck (and Steering Wheel) Shaking Violently, Practically Bouncing Up And Down. Braking Did Not Stop The Shaking, And Seemed To Make It Worse. It Would Not Stop Until I Had Coasted And Very Carefully Applied Brakes Until I Got Below 20 Mph. Fortunately, The Road Was Straight In All 4 Occurrences, Or I Feel I Would Have Gone Off The Road. Upon Exiting Interstate And Inspecting Front End, I Noted That The “death Wobble” Had Actually Torn Small Chunks Out Of My Front Tires (oem Goodyear Wrangler At, Lt275/70r18e), Along With Other Cracks And Divots; There Was No Such Damage To The Rear Tires. I Did Not Drive It Over 40 Mph After That, Until I Had Taken It To A Local ford Dealer To Be Inspected The Next Day. They Said It Needed An Alignment, And Replaced The Tires, And Since Then It Has Not Reoccurred. This Had Actually Happened About 3 Times Prior To This, Over The Span Of 3 Months, With Weeks Between, Under Similar Driving Conditions, But I Incorrectly Assumed It Was Just Due To Combination Of Stiff Suspension And Rough Road. I Own And Tow An Rv, And It Has Never Happened While Towing, Regardless Of Speed (i Never Exceed 65 Mph When Towing.) When The Dealer Serviced The Truck, They Did Not Acknowledge The Problem And Said They Could Not Reproduce It, But I Do Not Believe They Drove It Over 45 Mph In Test Driving.

While Driving On Us Hwy 67 In Arkansas (a Very Rough Road) At 60 Mph, Towing A 15k Lb 5th Wheel Rv, Encountered A Bump In The Road And Subsequently Experienced A Sustained Steering Wheel Oscillation That Lasted Approximately 15-20 Seconds Until Speed Was Reduced To Approximately 30 Mph And Stable Operation Resumed. This Oscillation Has Been Experienced In The Past A Few Times, But Only For 1-2 Seconds And Always After Experiencing A Bump In The Road.

On Nov. 7 And Nov. 24, 2018 While Driving My 2017 F350 Super Duty Diesel Truck I Crossed Freeway Bridge Transition Strips At 70mph, At Which Time The Front End Of The Truck Went Into What Is Commonly Referred To By Owners As The “death Wobble”. The Front End Of The Truck Began To Violently Shake Up, Down And Sideways. These Violent Vibrations Were Obviously Felt In The Steering Wheel, Which Also Began To Violently Shake, Nearly Taking The Wheel Out Of My Hands When The Event First Started. The Vibration Did Not Stop Until I Was Off On The Berm And Reduced Speed To Approximately 30 Mph. These Occurrences Obviously Caused Not Only A Safety Hazard For Me, But For Every Vehicle Behind Or Beside Me At The Time. The Only Way To Stop The Problem Is To Immediately Reduce Speed, Which Is Extremely Dangerous At Highway Speeds Of 70 Mph, Even More So If Towing A Trailer Or Camper. This Issue Can Very Easily Cause Vehicles With This Issue To Lose Control Resulting In An Accident. This Problem Is Widely Known, Going Back Years, And Owners Have Said Tsb 18-2268 Does Not Correct The Problem. ford Needs To Correct This Problem, And Owner’s Online Don’t Understand Why The Nhtsa Allows This Problem To Persist.

Steering Wobble (some Call It Death Wobble) On Cartoon Bumps It Appears T Induce A Uncontrollable Wo Bue In Front Wheel Steering. Wheels Will Isolate Fast And Violently Until Vehicle Slows. My Vehicle So Far Happens Int He 55 To 60 Mph Range And Coasting Without Using Brakes It Will Discontinue Before 40mph. I Notice On The Highway That I Ha E Experia Cedar This (3 Times So Far) That Several Of The Typical Cross Ridges Caused By Ground Heave Or Freezing Will Make Steering Wheel Shale Like 3 Times. This Is Not Normally Experianced On Most Smoother Black Top Roads. I Feel The 3 Shakes Are A Pre-wobble Action And When A Bump Maybe Is Repeated In Cartoon Distance Maybe It Makes That 3 Shake I’ve Feel Cross The Controlled Steering Point And This Shake/wobble Happens. I Have Only Had The Wo Bue Happen While Going Straight But Have Felt This 3 Shack Pre-wobble Several Times When In A Curve And Feel Like It Could Do It In A Curve Also Should The Needed Trigger Bumps Be There. I Do Not Have Photo Or Video Do Hope To Mount Camera And Have A Video Should It Repeat In The Future. ford Dealer 1st Visit Fou D Nothing But Felt They Could Change Alignment But Needed To Order A Shim I Believe. 2nd Visit Realigned Using A Shim And Change Steering Dampner. 3 Rd Visit Same Answer But Shims On Backorder Will Change Past 3/4 Degree Adjustment To 1 Degree.

I Own A 2017ford F350 That Has Experienced Death Wobble. Which Is A Violent Shaking And Vibrating In The Front End. When It Happens, The Front End Shakes So Badly, You Cannot Even Control The Vehicle. My Truck Only Has 20,000 Miles On It, And This Shouldn?t Be Happening. It Happens When Driving On A Straight Road, When Turning, When Hitting A Bump, Going Fast Or Going Slow. I Know Many Other ford Owners Have Reported Their Death Wobble, So I Am Joining Them.
