I had this on my 2012 F250 4x4. All together, it spent about 3 months at the dealership. Our fleet manager had the Ford rep involved and all. They would replace something, it would still do it. Try something else, still doing it. Last thing they did was put the old stabilizer bar on and replace tires. That fixed it. I believe the new ball joints helped also. It’s definitely a scary situation to be in.

Same thing happened to my 2010 F250 4x4, I had to install an aftermarket steering stabilizer on it made by BDS suspension it has 2 fox shocks on it and it was fairly easy to install yourself, have never had a problem since. PM me if you have any other questions about it!

Driving dodge trucks I had it happen a few times. It was always work track bar bushings. The track bar hold the axle in place and when the bushings wear it allows the solid front axle to vibrate from Side to side. Ford is using the same technology now since they went from leaf springs to coils.
I started buying my track bar from OReilley. They have a lifetime warranty and when it wore iut I took it in and they replaced it.

I spent a bunch of money to not fix it on my last truck (2012 F250)
Replaced just about every front end part, shocks, tires.

GETNBENT is a Landlubber (+10 to -10)
If you haven't tried this already, air your tires up to the maximum air pressure and make sure they have the same pressure on both sides. This is what helped my f350 with a strait front axle from shaking.

Nah but really, I drove a 3500 Duramax '05 at a shop I worked at not knowing about it's death wobble...... I knew what death wobble was, but didn't know that truck had it... Hit that bridge doing about 65mph, and there she went. Scared the **** out of me. Just let off the gas and let her slow down, then keep on rolling

A buddy had a new truck that was doing it at very low miles. Ron Carter could never fix it, Ford factory guys could never fix it either. He eventually got a new truck out of the deal. His was around 2010-2012 model.
