I agree. It's probably the original Michelin tires. Look them over in detail. Is one of them wearing unevenly. I never had the death wobble problem until recently and it was one of the tires wearing unevenly. What made it more pronounced was the tread in the front right was beginning to separate and that was what was causing the even wobble. I replaced all four tires at discount tires and the F350 is running perfect again. I was thinking like the others that it might of been ball joints and alignment and stuff and wanting to blame FORD. In the end, it was just the tires. Also, make sure the tires or new tires are properly inflated. Good Luck.

My front end feels loose on my 17 also and I have 85K miles. When turn the wheel side to side sitting still I can feel the feedback in what feels like the tie rod and can hear a noise. I have a 100K bumper to bumper warranty I wonder if it will be covered under that.

Have not had any full blown death wobble yet but there are some times where I feel like I'm right on the verge.

Should be, click on front/rear suspension & steering

They will do as little as possible to fix it then tell you to have the tires balanced and rotated...which will help a bit. Have them take a close look at the track bar...

I have a 2017 that had the death wobble issues after hitting bumps in the road. Started around 25k Changed the shocks with factory and it cleared up but came back within 10k miles. After market shocks and stabilizer cleared it up. No issues now.

My Dad has a 2018 F250 started doing the same death wobble around 23k miles, my 2017 did it as well. Since it is a known issue, Ford should be installing steering stabilizers from the get go. Its ridiculous on a 65k truck and dangerous.

Had an 06 Dodge 2500 with the same problem. Spent $$ to fix it. Got f'd on probable fixes. In the end, got rid of it.
