I know of 1 person where I work that had a '17 he got new that had death wobble. He ended up trading for a new Chevy. I think he gave ford a couple trys to fix it and moved on. Another friend of mine had a '17 they got used that had it once. I think a steering dampener was replaced and it has gone away. I don't know a bunch of details on either one, just that they were both new or pretty new trucks (at least to me) that had death wobble. With that being said, I certainly don't think its a prevalent issue today on new trucks.

Just about anyone that thinks a ford 3/4 or 1 ton truck has death wobble doesn't know the difference between that and bump steer... big difference.. most of them have bump steer. Just need a tweek on the alignment rack. Or add a couple more steering dampners...

I don't believe its a widespread problem on 05 up sd mostly coming on after parts get worn or suspension gets modified. My observations are that I believe I will open up a can of worms retrofitting this suspension on my obs. Sure it will ride better and have a better turning radius and im sure there are thousands swaps done on obs and leaf spring sd's that have no ill effects. Jschildm you know of 2 people that had it on a 17 . If I paid 60k plus and my truck did this id be in a uproar..You as well as I still have our obs trucks there is a reason for that Im sure you can afford to upgrade but choose to live in the past like me when a truck was a truck and not something you drop a house payment on every month..

I totally agree with you but a few videos I watched on you tube it was dw..I also believe that 90 percent of these people who have these trucks don't even know what a solid axle is or what a dana 60 is The Diesel community and owners have changed greatly in the 25 years ive been into Diesels. Just yesterday leaving Wally World 2 guys walking out you would swear were going to get into a riced out Civic got into a lifted big piped Cummins I guess Im getting old

Now that could be. I hadn't ridden in either one or observed when they did it.
