BD Diesel Takes On Dodge Ram Death Wobble

It seems '94 to current Dodge Rams have an issue with "death wobble" in the front ends. If you're not familiar with the term, death wobble is an uncontrollable shake that starts small in the front suspension, but quickly escalates and sometimes becomes very violent. While it's commonly known and addressed in lifted Jeep Wranglers, Dodge Rams are now coming to the forefront of discussion, as the problem is happening on NON-lifted trucks.

Canada's CBCNews did a piece recently on the subject, which you can view here.

To quote BD Diesel, "With the OEM ball joint design, frequent maintenance is required to prevent side-to-side movement of the front axle which can cause wear, hammering, wandering and the dreaded "Death Wobble" - BD's Adjustable Track Bar is the perfect solution for steering stability and is a great compliment to BD's Steering Box Stabilizer (SBS). Plus, it is adjustable to accommodate up to 4" lifts!"

Steering Box Stabilizer
BD’s new Steering Box Stabilizer (SBS) eliminates steering wander and wobble caused by excessive shaft play in the steering box of late-model Dodge trucks. Designed for easy, bolt-in installation in about an hour, the SBS virtually eliminates frame flex at the steering box mounting point, resulting in more positive steering feel.

The BD SBS is silver vein powder coated for corrosion resistance, and features a greasable, high-quality bearing for reliable operation. Made in Canada, the SBS comes complete with high-strength mounting hardware and instructions.
