I suppose it is possible - almost anything is possible with motor cars. Like the old saying goes; anything with tyres or testes is going to cause trouble sooner or later, however, I have never known the symptom you describe to be caused by a transmission.
I have known an unfortunate choice of tyres to cause some strange sensations. Some of the early Michelin tyres used to wobble a lot under acceleration. I have known some older tyres to sometimes feel like the wheels are walking along the road rather than rotating but that was at a fairly low speed and neutral throttle opening.
Worn driveline components are by far the most common causes of a less than smooth power delivery with worn inner drive shaft joints the top of my list for strange or unusual wobble sensations.
It is wise to go back to basics and do some serious checking before spending any money...
While driving you start to slow down and it feels like a tire is loose and wobbling? That is caused by a broken steel belt in the tire. You will need to replace the tire ASAP!! The tires with broken belts expolde at high driving speeds which is very dangerous
"Wobble" to me indicates something with a large mass not installed correctly.
The first thing I would do would be to check the wheels to make sure they were re-installed correctly. Seated flush to the flanges? Wheel nuts torqued?
A vibration would tend to indicate that the u-joint may not be centred in the restraining components.
You can always resort to putting it securely on Jack stands or a hoist and then running it SLOWLY in gear to see if you can determine the source of the problem. THIS CAN BE VERY DANGEROUS SO DO NOT EVEN TRY UNLESS YOU'RE TOTALLY SAFE.
Dodge shaken syndrome 2007 mega cab 2500 ram most people
call it the death wobble. One thing for sure is they have it half right however
it is far from a wobble. In my opinion a wobble is something like a farmer
pulling two hay wagons at ten miles per hour with a bad wheel bearing, but not
so harmful at least you could see it coming. Now this shaken syndrome is way
more serious. When you drive in stress waiting for it to happen again every
crack, pot hole, and bridge overpass is a possibility. I can't run the speed
limit I am afraid of our safety, although you can let someone behind you
because when it happens you have to slam on your breaks so hard and almost come
to a complete stop. The shaking is unbearable; you can really understand it,
unless you experience it yourself. I never experienced anything like this in a
vehicle in my entire life. The dealerships say it could be multiple things, but
i have covered all of them options. In my opinion it is the scissor steering
components that dodge calls the "y type". They must have thought that
something was wrong because in 2008 they changed their steering to know what
they call the "T type". I know what the right thing to would be to
sell this truck and get a different one, but two things come to mind when i
think of this. First, I wouldn't want anyone to get hurt anymore then myself,
and secondly unfortunately I do not have the money to buy another truck. I
waited my whole life to get a truck of this caliber and now i am so
disappointed. Please for all the viewers if you have a truck that has the
shaken syndrome, please help to get these parts recalled.
