I have a 2004 with the same problem. It is actually a defect on dodges behave. The steering box flexes on the frame when you hit a bump. Bd diesel puts out a steering box brace and a new track bar with the right geometry to fix it. I had replaced everything under my front end before i saw the article in off road adventures magazine. I contacted dodge and asked why this was not a safety recall. They said they no nothing about it and refused to help me. I called the National Highway Transportation Safety Board and filed a complaint. I suggest you do the same and anyone else who reads this. If you need to contact me email me at email@example.com. maybe we can get enough people to complain before someone dies from this.

My friend, I had a similar vibration problem with my 2006 Dodge Ram. My truck originally came with 17-inch rims and I later swapped them out for 20-inches rims. The front end vibration was immediatley felt once the tire shop mounted the new tires and rims. I took my truck to the dealer and to several tire shops and all were unable to determine the main cause. I had them balanced over and over again, all to no avail. I finally came across a type of tire balancing called Road Force balancing, and I located a Firestone shop that had the appropiate machine. The vibartion problem went away immediatly.

Check the tires for bubbles or irregular tire wear. Check the lug nuts, make sure they are all tight. Check the rims, make sure they are not warped Check the drive shaft, make sure the u-joints are in good shape and the drive shaft isn't damaged. Look for may be a missing weight or a dent. Did the vibration occur after the brake job was done if so you may have a rotor that isnt balanced. Usually it would cause a vibration between 40 and 55 MPH.
