STEERING

5/29/2019 - MIRA LOMA, CA
MY 2012 F-250 HAS 126,000 MILES ON IT AND I HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING A STEERING VIBRATION AT ABOUT 50-55 MPH WHILE DRIVING OVER BUMPS AND ROUGH ROADS. ABOUT A WEEK AGO I WAS COMING DOWN A MOUNTAIN HIGHWAY AND DROVE OVER SOME ROUGH AREAS IN THE ROAD AT ABOUT 50 MPH AND THE TRUCK STARTED VIBRATING AND SHAKING VIOLENTLY. I HAD LITTLE CONTROL AND ALMOST WENT OFF THE SIDE OF OF THE HIGHWAY WHICH HAS ABOUT A 2000 FOOT DROP. I DIDN'T THINK I WOULD BE ABLE TO STOP BUT GOT IT SLOWED DOWN AND THE VIBRATION WENT AWAY. I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO SCARED. THE PAST FEW DAYS I HAVE BEEN READING ONLINE ABOUT FORD'S F-250 "DEATH WOBBLE". I AM CERTAIN THIS IS WHAT I EXPERIENCED AND HAVE CHECKED THE FRONT SUSPENSION AND FOUND NO OBVIOUS PROBLEM. WITH AS MANY COMPLAINTS I HAVE READ ABOUT THIS ISSUE I'M SURPRISED THERE HAS NOT BEEN ANY TALK OF A RECALL. I AM A RETIRED ASE CERTIFIED MASTER TECH DEALERSHIP TECHNICIAN AND FROM WHAT I HAVE READ THE MAIN PROBLEM IS THE TRAC BAR & BALL JOINT WEARING PREMATURELY AND NOT ENOUGH POSITIVE CASTER WHICH IS NON ADJUSTABLE FOR THIS MODEL. I CAN SEE THESE COMPONENTS POSSIBLY CAUSING THIS ISSUE. PLEASE DO SOMETHING BEFORE SOMEONE S KILLED!

5/1/2019 - GOLDTHWAITE, TX
AT APPROX 60 TO 75 MPH UPON HITTING UNEVEN PAYMENT OR BUMPS IN ROAD THE FRONT WHEELS START AN UNCONTROLLABLE WOBBLE , STEERING WHEEL SHAKES SO BAD CAN KEEP HANDS ON TO STEER AND NO STEERING IS POSSIBLE, IF BRAKES APPLIED ONLY GETS WORST, MUST COAST DOWN TO A STOP , U CANNOT STEER. I REPLACE ALL SHOCKS AND STEERING DAMPENER, STILL HAD WOBBLE AFTER WARDS. FORDS ANSWER IS TO CARRY WEIGHT IN THE REAR, AND NOT TO DRIVE ABOVE 60 MPH. THIS IS UNSAT. I HAVE BEEN ADVISED THE CASTER SETTING WHICH IS NOT ADJUSTABLE IS ONLY 1 DEGREE FORWARD AND NEEDS TO BE 3 DEGREES FORWARD. FORD SAYS THIS MAKES IT HARDER TO TURN IN A PARKING LOT. PLEASE HELP FORD DO AM RECALL BEFORE SOMEONE GETS KILLED. IN ALL 8 OF MY WOBBLES THREE I CAME ACROSS THE CENTER LANE BEFORE I COULD STOP AND THE OTHERS OFF ROAD IN THE DITCH.
