Hit a bump or bridge impact

Have not seen one yet that when you hit a pothole or bridge joint or speed bump the front wheel shakes slightly right left then settles down. At any speed our 19 does this. May be a defective steering shock.

Itís all over the net but dealerships play dumb.

I have a 2018 F350 long bed crew cab 4x4, 3rd f350. When I purchase, the first thing I do is replace rims/tires, shocks and steering stabilizer shocks with bilstein 5100ís. Tends to fix vibration issues with front end.

I have a 2016 F250 with Michelins. I had Centramatics on it. I had all kind of wobble. and slight tire cupping on the front. They rebalanced the tires with no help. Took the Centramatics off> All problems went away.

Iím experiencing this with our 19 at higher speeds in particular. The vehicle steering wheel vibrates, the mirrors shake but it doesnít seem to be threatening, only frustrating for a brand new vehicle. I have an appointment with the dealership on Monday which will probably end in an ďI canít see the issueĒ.

Good luck finding root cause I canít advise but if my scanning skills are working only one poster specified 4WD or 2WD.

Those are different suspensions.

Years ago I had a vibration that drove me crazy. Eventually went to a tire shop that could true the tires, which is like a big lathe that slices off the tread to make the tire perfectly round. Problem solved.

My apologies if this issue has been addressed on another thread but I did do several searches and could only find the death wobble previously mentioned.

In July 2018 I purchased a new 2018 F250. Shortly after taking delivery and the first time I got on a highway, starting about 65 mph, I noticed a vibration in the steering wheel. So I took it in for service, 8 times so far -

Service History
  • Balanced the tires (Michelin LT 275/65 R20)
  • Replaced all 4 tires (original tires were out of round due to sitting on a lot in Phoenix over the summer)
  • Alignment
  • Replaced dampening arm
  • Another alignment
  • Another alignment (alignment machine was out of alignment during the previous alignment, dealer reported this to me asked me to come back in)
  • Replaced dampening arm
  • Replaced two more tires that were some how out of spec. This resolved most of the vibration but I still feel a very slight vibration when on glass smooth highway and lightly touch the wheel. You can feel it but not really see it.

Fortunately all this work was done under warranty.

Now I am not sure if what I feel is just normal diesel vibration, my imagination or if there is still an unresolved issue. Prior to this truck I had a 2013 diesel F250 and did not notice what I am sensing now. Although the tires on the 2013 ran at much lower pressure, 35 psi vs. 65-70 psi.

I am thinking about going to another dealer but there is only one in my town and the next closest is 50 miles away. So I am asking if anyone is having or has had a similar experience and if it was resolved and how?

Or if this is just normal for late model diesel F250s with Michelin LT 275/65 R20 tires and I should just get over it?

The issue you describe is the LANE KEEPER alarm. It is on the top row of the center dash; it is annoying, just turn it off and you will enjoy your truck
