Good Morning, I can imagine it is a bumpy ride after you do that. Normally with normal wear and tear the front suspension gets worn and it could be anything from a tie rod end to shocks or springs, and could even be ball joints there ae so many moving pieces up front what I would recommend is taking it in and getting a front end inspection done by a local garage and they can pinpoint which piece or pieces it is. Hope this helps, and if youhave any questions please feel free to ask.
Thanks,
Joey

I have a 2001 Ford F-350 super duty and it shakes real bad when I get up to like 40mph but as soon as I let off the gas it stops. Any ideas


It is probably a combination of several of the following:
1. tires out of balance and/or out of round, cupped, bulging etc
2. bad shocks
3. loose suspension bushings front and/or back
4. bent or out of balance drive shaft
5. bad U joints
6. bad wheel bearings

1998 ram shakes at low rpm's (1100-1700) at around 40 mph, but the wheel or steering doesnt shake, its the truck itself shaking. It's not as bad when i get up to 50mph. The check engine light


Start by checking the tie rod ends on both sides on the front wheels..With the truck jacked up and jack stands underneath the frame both left and right wheels should be suspended in mid air..The are two tie rod ends on each side of the vehicle, a inside and outside tie rod..Check for any excessive place on each one...
Also ckeck the balance on all four tire's... Inspect the wheels for any stress cracks that would cause them to not to balance correctly and make your vehicle shake...
Check the transmission mounts on the cross member,make sure the mount is secure to the Trans and cross member mount..Also check both u-joints on the drive shaft and any hanger bearings that may be underneath there..If it's a 4 wheel drive check both drive shaft's...Anyone of these option's could show those
symtom's you mentioned...Good luck and let me know how it works out..

My Father In-law has a 95 F350 4x4. He hasnt been able to drive it in some time. When he drives and reaches 40+ mph the cab starts to shake pretty bad. the only thing that stops the shaking is to almost...


Hello, My thoughts are that someone needs to look underneath the truck from the front bumper to the rear axle. There are so many things that can cause this.

If the problem came after the truck was sitting a long time, you can have flat spots on the tires or rust spots on the rotors. As the rust builds up where moisture was held by the brake pads, the rotors will chaff against the pads until the rust is worn away. If the rust is thick enough, there will be rubbing and shaking without applying the brakes.

Check your U-joints. The U-joint to the front axle from the Transfer case seems to go out more from sitting than through use. Check the front hubs and CV joints and of course the rest of the U-joints. Look at the driveshafts for little square rust patches where balance weights fell off.

While driving at 40mph and shaking, slip the gearshift to Neutral and note if the shaking stops. Of course the truck will eventually stop, but you can feel if the shake was from the engine "Chugging" and better tell what direction the shake is coming from.

Check your tierods for excess play. I hope my solution helps you. I would be interested in knowing the end result.

Front End Steering problem


Here's the fix. Have all of the front end components checked for excessive play (tie rod ends, ball joints, pittman arm, and steering box) and replace any components that are worn. Also, REPLACE the steering stabilizer! It looks like a cross-mounted shock absorber attached to the frame and your steering linkage. These wear out and cause the exact condition that you've experienced.
