[QUOTE=Mr. Merk;2425526]My wife's coworker had this on his new F250 and they couldn't fix it. They bought it back and he's now in a modified 6.2 Sierra Denali half ton.[QUOTE]

Everyone seems to have a story about their brother-in-law’s second cousin.....


I’m at a rally now....200 rigs. LOTS of Ford Superduty’s here. It’s probably the most prevalent tow vehicle here. They didn’t all “death wobble” their way in.

The fix is an upgraded steering damper and making sure all front end components are tight.

If you want to go further than that there’s a place here in GA (powerstrokehelp.com) that has a mod that involves changing the caster angle along with steering dampers.

There are probably millions of 4wd Superduties on the road. You can find something wrong with any make or model if you look hard enough.

For me it's a world of difference especially with a near capacity loaded bed.

With either a 3/4 or 1 ton diesel I don't think you can go too wrong.
They certainly do exactly what you say, but they dramatically contribute to oversteer when towing at the upper limits so if you are towing a 30' or more trailer, a rear sway bar is not a good option. This is why they are not on the truck from the factory..

Thoughts on a F350 with a Tremor package towing a GT 27FB? Is that much 4x4 going to degrade the towing experience a lot? It’s rated to tow 15,000 lbs.

If the shoe fits, right? The 27FB isn't even close to 15k. Tow it and then go wheeling!

Yeah the softer springs with greater travel are less than ideal for towing. It allows the WD tension to put more strain on the trailer and provides for a less comfortable ride. Does not change safety or capability by much. So if these things don't bother you much or if the trade off is worth it, then the off-road packages may be your better choice.

The truck is no rock crawler, its still a 2500 rated for 15k. It's not going to be a crazy ride.

The power train is the same for an F250 or F350. Suspension and axles are different. Check in the State where it will be titled for license cost, insurance cost, etc. It can vary.
