Complaint - Steering, Suspension

WHILE DRIVING 60 MPH, TRUCK HIT IRREGULARITIES IN THE ROAD. VEHICLE STARTED SHAKING VIOLENTLY AND LOST CONTROL OF THE STEERING. VEHICLE HAD TO BE SLOWED TO 10-15 MPH BEFORE THE SHAKING STOPPED. NO ACCIDENT OR INJURY OCCURRED ON THIS INCIDENT. TRUCK WAS TAKEN TO DEALER AND TRACK BAR ASSY / BUSHING WAS REPLACED. THE SECOND SERIOUS INCIDENT WAS @ 48,000 MILES A MERE 11,000 MILES LATER. WHILE TRAVELING 55-60 MPH THROUGH A LEFT HAND CURVE AND CROSSING ANOTHER IRREGULARITY IN THE ROAD (BRIDGE-PAVEMENT JOINT) THE TRUCK AGAIN BEGAN SHAKING VIOLENTLY AND CAUSED THE VEHICLE TO GO INTO THE ONCOMING LANE OF TRAFFIC WHERE A LOG TRUCK WAS TRAVELING. THE LOG TRUCK WAS ABLE TO GET ON THE SHOULDER OF THE ROAD IN TIME TO PREVENT AN ACCIDENT. AGAIN THE TRUCK HAD TO BE SLOWED TO ALMOST A COMPLETE STOP BEFORE THE SHAKING STOPPED. TRUCK WAS TAKEN TO DEALER AGAIN AND THE ONLY THING REPLACED WAS THE TRACK BAR BUSHING. THIS VEHICLE IS NOT SAFE!
