2017 F250 Front End Issues

Thoughts on this: 2017 Ford F-250, 6.7 Lariat diesel, right at 50K miles and the front end feels loose. Experienced a mild death wobble shake on one occasion. Truck is all stock on original Michelins, mix of city / highway driving, no off-road use, never wrecked. Dropped it off at the Ford dealer for a look and was told the bushings and tie rods were worn out. Looking at approximately $1,800.00 plus a realignment. Anyone else had an issue on theirs with this few miles? Just curious if this is a one off deal or somewhat normal.

Yep had the same thing - but I had death wobble frequently starting at 35,000 on my 2017. Frustrating part is that ford won’t admit it is a problem - try to blame it on stuff wearing out. Bad design.

My solution - I traded it in for a 2019.

Why would you trade the same make/model truck giving you issues with only 35K miles in on a newer one?

Not a good sign for a truck that should last 400k miles with a Diesel engine. Those repairs will be costly over time. Ford should take care of that issue on a stock vehicle, I would try a different dealership.

Can Do Front End

I would take it to Can Do on West Main in Baytown, and have them look at it. They are the only shop that I trust to work on my vehicles.

Take it to Can Do Front Ends on West Main in Baytown. They are reasonable and use MOOG parts.

I'd suspect those orig michelins. I had a 17 and changed the tires (michelins) at 30K because they were chit. Drove the truck to 100K with no front end problems. Even had a heavy ranch hand out front.

You sound like my wife!! The new 2019 is a Platinum with different shocks - not the cheap version Ranchos. It actually drives smoother. It may do the same thing and then I will figure out a solution.

This is a known issue that Ford is aware of. I found a Ford Technical Service Bulletin #18-2268 (Sustained Steering Wheel Oscillation-Above 45 MPH, dated August 2018) that addresses this problem. All of the parts listed in the bulletin are what Baytown Ford has on their purposed work order. I'm taking it in next week to Silsbee Ford where the truck was purchased for a second opinion. I searched the F-250/350 and 2017-2019 F-250 Owners Group pages on Facebook and found this to be a fairly common problem. The opinion shared by some is, the stock wheels need 5 degrees more off-set with this suspension design.
