Truck has terrible vibration above 50mph. Already has ruined one set of tires. Seems to be coming from the left side more than the right.
It has the vibration in in when I bought it and when I took to have it checked on the recall was told that it not under the recall but I have put in it in line and put new tires and wheel hubs on it and still doing it
loose steering noise coming from front end had to replace tie rod ends sway bar linkage it was ready to fall out and all bushing in them as well and both pitman arms and bushing as well and steering damper too. Now my universal joints both in front differential unit four wheel drive unit the ujoint and seal has to be replaced and also rear ujoint and seal has to be replaced as well in rear differential. Dodge had to replace the rear ujoint at 71000 miles because it broke.
