Not safe to drive like that. You have a bad balljoint or bad steering box minimum.. What is happening is the front end has mounting pins called Balljoints and they keep the wheels attached to the body of the truck. One or more of those pins are getting ready to come off of your truck

You will not be able to steer your truck, the body of the truck may hit the ground and you will not be moving after that. I can not really suggest you drive to an alignment shop. This sounds like a Park and Tow job.

When driving my truck and i hit a bump in the road. The truck will jump around on the road until it straightens out again. If I'm in a turn and I hit a bump the truck will jump around until stability.


Hey Alonzo,
One of three things,
1. Your suspension is WAY TOO STIFF!!! ..most likely
2. ALL of your shocks are frozen, which makes it seem like riding in a buckboard wagon
3. The suspension is way TOO soft.. (not likely)

I hit a bump in the road and now the truck pulls real bad to the right and the steering wheel shakes real bad at low speed and when I hit the brakes? 2000 gmc sonoma


check your wheel is on nice and tight. check that the yore has no bulges or damage to all sides.
If everything appears okay take it to a suspension/steering specialist for a look ....sounds like you may have suffered suspension damage.
Who is responsible for the maintenance of that road? I would consider contacting them for an inquiry about possible compensation for the cost of repair, they always fix the road pretty quickly after such inquiries!!!!!
Taking a photo of the offending bump might be advisable

The plug that connects to the main ecu computer might be loose and the hard bumps might be causing an intermittent connection. Check the ecu plug and if it's loose, you can use plastic wire straps to secure it firmly to the ecu.

I'll hit a bump while driving down the road and it seems like the whole truck absorbes the bump and really takes it hard


Bet you need to get some new shocks may just be one whichever side takes it the hardest.

04 Dodge 2500 4X4 shakes violently after hitting bump at 55 mph +


The bumps do initiate the shaking. When my 2006 Ram 2500 4x4 started shaking, I had just had it aligned that morning. A month or so before that alignment, my passenger side outer tie-rod broke while driving down a rock road. I replaced it with a heavy duty MOOG tie-rod end. Anyway, the same day I had it aligned I was driving back home from a job and towing my bobcat behind me. I hit a bump and the truck did the "death wobble" with the front end shaking violently up and down in an alternating fashion (one tire in the air while one tire on the ground and then vice-versa). I changed the tires first (which were worn-out 305/75/17 mud tires). Since the day I bought the truck new in Jan. 2006, I've had larger tires on the truck than the tiny 235/75/17s that came with it and I've done a lot of heavy towing with it and never had a problem until this alignment was done at Sears. I;m still trying to figure out if it was the alignment specs that they used or if the problem coincidentally started that same day. I also changed the steering stabilizer. Neither the new tires nor the stabilizer/damper helped the problem. So I changed the other outer tie-rod end and the upper and lower ball joints (all MOOG with grease fittings). I turns out they were worn out. So, the truck no longer shakes violently up and down when I hit a bump. That problem seems to be in check. However, now when I hit a bump the truck's front end wobbles side-to-side. I can do a few things to recover from it. I can hit the brakes pretty hard and sudden (which can cause an accident on the interstate), or I can **** the steering wheel side-to-side a few times (from 10 o'clock to 2 o'clock) and that stops it immediately...until the next bump in the road. Also, if I let my foot off the accelerator just before hitting a bump and let the truck coast over it instead of power through it, sometimes the truck will ride over the bump without incident. I found out yesterday on a 5 1/2 hour road trip that if I did 80 to 90 miles per hour and powered through every road blemish, the truck rode fine...no shaking at all. I suppose the high speed forces the tires to stay straight when they hit a bump. Lastly, to confuse my problem solving attempts further, sometimes the truck rides like a cadillac (for an hour or so) at regular speeds and no matter what bumps I hit. Then without worning, the front end will loosen up and get that sloppy feeling again and the wobbling comes back at every bump...until the next time it feels like tightening up and driving right again. I have no idea what to do now. I'm going back to Sears today to have them check their alignment. Other than that, all I can think of is to change the rest of the steering components and check the steering box for malfunction. I hope someone can help all of us Dodge owners out off of the road tested info that I've just provided. Dodge doesn't seem to care to address the problems with their trucks front ends, and we need a solution before people get hurt or die. I was almost run over by an 18-wheeler trying to figure out how to handle the shake. I can't afford to buy another truck. So I need to fix this one so I can keep working. If anybody has a concrete solution to these problems, please let us know. I've read 20 different opinions from mechanics on these blogs, but nobody has said yet that they fixed someone's truck with these problems and have since heard from that customer and everything is still working fine. Opinions are helpful sometimes, but they're also confusing when they're conflicting.

91 Dodge ram 50 ignition problem, rough idle in drive,dies when braking


my ram 50 starts just like any other vehicle, (no light switch pulling whatso ever), it sounds like somebody haas rewired something wrong or you have a loose connection and when you hit a large enough bump it cuts your power. Start it up and find a speed bump somewhere and drive over it enough to give your truck a jolt and see if it dies.
