In Dodge Diesel trucks, the occurrence of “death wobble” has become more and more frequent. Customers have often experienced it in terrifying circumstances. The owner of Source Automotive experienced it at nearly 100 mph while drag racing! During that event, it took all of his strength to stop the vehicle safely!
While many factors can contribute to this problem, more and more customers as of late complain of it. With the cost of new diesel trucks rising to extremely high levels, older trucks are staying on the road longer and often with worn out parts which can contribute to this problem.
Significant improvements in the steering of Dodge diesel trucks can be made by installing a Dodge Steering Stabilizer, a Tie Rod Upgrade kit or an improved Track Bar. The author of this article immediately knew a tremendous improvement in his 2002 Dodge steering had been made when he put on a Dodge Steering Stabilizer.
Old components should not be overlooked. Wheel bearings, Tie rod ends, Ball joints and tires can all play into the problem of Death Wobble. Let the experts at Source Automotive help you steer clear of this problem! They have experienced it personally and know how serious the issue can be!
