 I have been watching the news recently and saw the jeep death wobble reports. i have the same experience and same problem with my 2006 dodge ram 2500. i almost got into two accidents on the high way and once my truck lost control due to the death wobble and turned 180 degrees on the highway facing oncoming traffic. but, luckily no one was hurt. i took the truck to see what the problem was and the mechanics said i have to pay a couple thousand to repair. however, the mechanic said he has seen many jeep and dodge have the same problem and said the company should have a recall because it is extremely dangerous and it is the manufactures fault. due to hard economic times i can not afford to fix my truck and i am very scared for my safety and my families. so please help me in this terrible situation along with other dodge ram and jeep owners. this is very common problem and can be seen all over the internet, youtube and the news. i look forward to hearing back from you and getting help. *tr

 I own an operate a 2006 dodge ram 2500 diesel pick up truck; it has aproximately 52000 miles on it. many parts of the front end are worn out and need to be replaced. i have experienced what is referred to as death wobble where the front end of the truck shakes and vibrates violently and highway speeds after hitting bumps in the road. this condition causes an uncontrolled state of vehicle operation and is very un-safe. i have spent a lot of money replacing poorly designed front end components of this truck and there are still more that need replacement. it has bad track bar bushings, bad tie rod ends, bad ball joints, and had a bad steering box replaced under warrantee. dodge is aware of these problems and is turning their back on it by not issuing a recall. they have already changed the designs and updated the steering linkages on 2008 and newer dodge trucks. all of the components on the front end that are subject to wear are severely worn and only two tie rod ends have grease fittings. these happen to be the only two parts not worn out. i feel not having serviceable grease points on the parts is causing this premature wear along with the use of sub-standard parts, which are not designed to be used with a heavy duty diesel pick up trucks weight. these issues need to be brought to correction before someone is seriously hurt. i am lucky the times the truck has lost control in a shake that i didn't crash. please help, i feel with only 52000 miles on a 2006 truck that this catistrofic failure of a heavy duty front should not be happening. someone needs to step in and tell dodge they messed up.

 I just purchased a stock 06 dodge 2500 4x4. yesterday when driving it i nearly lost control while traveling 70mph and hitting small bumps in the paved road. the steering proceeded to turn right by its own then corrected. i took it to a mechanic who said that it was death wobble common to my year of truck. i researched online and found many people with the same complaints! *tr
