Have the wheel bearings checked ,and possible,changed out.If it is a four wheel drive,have a steering damper put on the steering to help control this problem,also have the upper,and lower ball joints checked out,,Dodge has had a problem with there ball joints in the past,with them going out premature.If the front end was aligned,they have missed something,it is not staying in align,if the ball joints are worn,and giving just a little,this would cause this problem.Ball joints cause a camber,and caster change.One more thought,have the brake calipers checked,just to make sure they are not ,either one of them ,staying closed on the rotors,and if so,check the brake caliper hoses,the calipers should release all the way.Check stabilizer bar,and bushings,for damage,the sway bar can cause this also,and the control arm bushings.this is almost always over looked in alignments,or just not spotted at first.

Have you had a 4 wheel alignment performed to check out the rear end?

Check for looseness in the bearings.

Any chance the fluid in the rear differential is low or empty due to a leak of some kind?? That's sure the first thing I'd check. It may also have nothing to do with your drive line. Do you have DEEP DEEP treads on your rear tires or "knobby" tires designed for rough terrain or off roading?? I know those can make one HECK of a racket at highway speeds.

Front end shakes but shock is new and all the tierod ends are new


Look at your tires for uneven wear. Check front wheel balance and ball joints. You may be able to get a free front end inspection at some alignment shops.

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.

The woble is as significant as both tires blowing. I slow down allowing the front end to stablize and truck returns to normal. 2007 quad cab w/diesel.


To me I would say you have something major going on. It could be many things such as:
1) unbalanced tires ( the easiest to fix)
2) A broken belt in your tire(s), in which case you will need to replace them
3) bad ball joints, upper and or lower, in which case you will need to replace them
4) bad tierod ends, you will need to replace them
5) bad idler arm
6) bad Pitman arm
7) bad center link
8) sever out of alinement at times can also make this happen
It could be any of these things, and possibly something else I may have overlooked. I would start in this order. Let me know if this helps you out.

Front end problems


You seem to have more than one problem, first of all the balding tire you have a negative camber problem that can be adjusted by getting a wheel alignment done. The shaking problem while applying brake could mean that you have bad/warped front rotors. It can also mean bad Tie rods. Lastly it can mean that the front tires needs to be high speed balanced. Good Luck
