A couple of questions. Do you have oversized tires?
Has the truck been raised or a lift kit intalled?
If you try this, it might tell you alot about what is going on and why.
On s straight section of road have a friend watch your aproach at around 25 nph and paying attention to what your front tires do when you break hard. If your body or front end dips it is radically changing your front end alignment. Most pronounced is your tires will toe out excessively. returning to normal once stopped and body settled. This is due to Pitman and Idler are length. It's worth checking because it will ruin your tires and front end parts if not corrected. Now, that's if there is a lift kit or oversized tires or both.
If you have a profile pic of your truck I would like to see it. send to co7197@hotmail.com. Thanks and good luck. Don't run over your partner.

Front end vibrates between 80-100km/h. am sure its not the brakes as it does not happen when i brake .


Good Morning This is usually a broken belt in one of your front tires. sometimes you can physically look and feel your tire and see where the belt is broke because it will be like a small lump on tread surface. If you have hit a bad pothole or bump in the road will cause this, or its possible to have lost a wheel weight and an out of balance tire will also cause vibration in the front end. I am assuming that below and above this speed you dont notice any vibration and if so i would go to your tire guy and have him look at the tires and check for a broken belt and or balance the tires if no signs of tire damage. Hope this helps you Good Luck and God Bless

I have some front end viberation in my 2006 dodge ram 1500 quad cab 4x4 while driving at highway speeds and also braking at high speeds?


There could be several causes. You could need your tires balanced, you might have unevenly worn tires caused by loose steering parts or worn shock absorbers. Have a tire shop check the tires. If the vibration gets worse when applying the brakes it indicates warped rotors. If they have not reached minimum thickness they may be able to be resurfaced - however - resurfacing removes more material and takes away their ability to get rid of heat, meaning they could warp again sooner. Fast driving and hard braking causes the heat that causes warpage.

Front end vibrates when braking at highway speeds


Most common cause for this is rotors that have become warped. It is not uncommon if you drive fast and brake hard OR live in hilly country or with heavy loads. The brakes get hot - the more they are used the hotter they may get. When they cool they do not cool evenly. If there is enough of the rotor left it may be resurfaced to true it. However - the thinner it gets the less heat it can handle. When rotors reach a minimum thickness (stamped on the rotor) they must be replaced.

Dodge is running rough and missing badly


this power steering pump has been a problem from the start. I have seen them replaced alot. They run about 50$ new, and are a easy fix. As far as it running ruff, have you ever tuned it up?
