That's pretty funny. Although mine is 2WD, if I slow down/let off the accelerator it makes the problem worse until I'm almost completely stopped. Accelerating on the other hand, decreases the wobble.

Thanks for not posting just to ask if replacing bushing fixed my problem. I DO have the bushing but have NOT installed them yet. lol

I saw it first hand on Beltway 8 the other day. White F250 6.7, looked like 35" tires. He went from 75 to 55 real quick, and it almost looked like the wheels were gonna come off. Thought he was having a tire come apart. Few minutes later he passed me going 75 again, guessing something might have touched cotton.

Resurrection of this old thread of mine to advise of final resolution.



I FINALLY found the problem Saturday. I've been checking things periodically but everything appeared tight so haven't replaced parts yet. Saturday after helping SIL rebuild the differential in his van we decided to investigate my wobble problem. Again, everything appeared tight, steering, ball joints, wheel bearings, etc..........UNTIL he started the engine and turned the steering wheel with me under the truck. It was obvious immediately. The i beam mounting bracket for the drivers side i beam was VERY loose. The reason being one of the mounting bolts had sheared off and two others had loose nuts so only one bolt was still tight. Additionally, we discovered a small crack on the corner of the bracket where the bolt had sheared.


I am extremely lucky (guardian angel watching over me) this thing didn't break loose completely while hauling #&& on the highway. And, pretty dumb for not spending more time extensively investigating the problem before now. I've had my wife in the truck turning the steering wheel while I looked for problems but for some reason never had the truck running.


So, I hope folks use my dumbarse blunder as a lesson to not let problems go. This could have been a real disaster had the bracket failed at the wrong time.


I'm prepared for the beating I have coming.

Just a few days ago I was headed down the Hardy Toll road and saw what appeared to be a new(ish) F-250 that appeared fairly stock hit a pot hole. Those front tires wobbled fairly excessively from what I could see. It looked like a harmonic vibration. There is no way that fella couldn't feel that in his steering wheel. Sounds like this could be an ongoing issue for Ford.
