Complaint - Steering, Suspension

FORD F250 TRUCK - FRONT END SUSPENSION AND 4 WHEEL DRIVE PROBLEMS. SINCE MARCH OF THIS YEAR 2016, @ 90K MILES, WHILE DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD, TRAVELING AROUND 50 MPH, THE FRONT SUSPENSION ON MY FORD F250 STARTED SHAKING AND WOBBLE UNCONTROLLABLE. THIS HAS HAPPENED PROBABLY 20 TIMES OR SO. THE WOBBLE WAS SO SERIOUS AND SCARY. I WOULD HAVE TO APPLY MY BRAKES AND HOLD ONTO THE STEERING WHEEL WITH A STRONG GRAB, TO KEEP MY TRUCK ON THE ROAD. OTHER VEHICLES AROUND MINE, WOULD SCATTER OUT OF MY WAY. ON OCTOBER 17, 2016, I HAD THE STEERING DAMPER REPLACED AND THE TRACK BAR BALL REPLACED, COSTING $361.71. "DEATH WOBBLE", WAS STILL HAPPENING. LAST MONTH ON NOVEMBER 14, 2016, I TOOK MY TRUCK INTO OUR LOCAL FORD DEALERSHIP FOR REPAIRS ON THE SUSPENSION PROBLEM - "DEATH WOBBLE". REPAIRS INCLUDED, BAR - FRONT SUSPENSION TI, JOINT ASY - BALL, NUT, END ASY - DRAG LINK ROD, ROD, ROD ASY - DRAG LINK, ADJUSTER ASY @ 2, ALL REPLACED WITH NEW PARTS. REPLACE DRAG INK AND END, INSTALL ADJUSTERS FOR CASTOR, FRONT END ALIGNMENT (4 WHEEL DRIVE). THE FORD DEALERSHIP WAS EVEN AWARE OF THIS EXISTING PROBLEM WITH THE FORD F250 SUSPENSION, FROM PREVIOUS COMPLAINS AND REPAIRS. MY REPAIR COST WAS $1205.07. NOW MY 4 WHEEL DRIVE WILL NOT LOCK IN ON THE FRONT END. I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT, TAKING MY TRUCK BACK TO FORD DEALERSHIP TOMORROW MORNING FOR ADDITIONAL REPAIRS. THIS IS A MAJOR SAFETY ISSUE ON THESE VEHICLES AND SOMETHING MUST BE DONE ABOUT IT. A RECALL SHOULD AND MUST BE MANDATORY FOR THE PUBLIC SAFETY. THIS ISSUE WILL END UP KILLING SOMEONE (IF, IT HAS NOT ALREADY) IF, A RECALL IS NOT ORDERED IMMEDIATELY.
