We have a fleet of 2013 and 2014 Fords in our Unit, mostly Battalion Chief vehicle, but a few are Utilities. And EVERY SINGLE one of them has the exact same death wobble Ours are all 250s. One BC even sent a video from his phone to us in the shop to show it. He was driving and hit a small bump and it set it off. In his video, he couldn't even keep a grip of the steering wheel.
So we checked with other Units nearby, and they have the same problem. We contacted sacramento Fleet and there are Units across the State that have the same exact problem. This has been going on for about three years. We have talked to Ford about it and they claim there is no issue, that its just tire or specific truck problems. Then why is it over the entire state and with NUMEROUS trucks????
Anyway, we have been replacing ENTIRE front ends, tires, rims, EVERYTHING. And some trucks still have it, some have stopped.
At any rate, the Dept has decided to replace every single '13 and '14 Ford state wide. The last contract ws for Dodge, but some knucklehead in charge went back to Ford for this contract year.
