None with mine yet, but I am thinking that we specifically won't see any death wobble over here, It will be a "TREMOR" not a wobble. ;)

Feel the Tremor 😆

But really.. the stories I’ve read do play in the back of my head. I’ve never bought a new vehicle before and I’ve never paid more then $10k for one either. Shelling out $60k+ and then having this show up doesn’t help. 🤦‍♂️😬

No death wobble, what is the reason for the question?

Google F250 Death Wobble. There are report of it dating back as far as 2005. A minor to violent shaking of the truck that can occur over 45mph when hitting a minor road bump. There are a couple lawsuits and a class action also against Ford over it.

Zero dont see that happening with everything so tight. Fixed many on old worn out Jeeps and just a few Super Duty.

Fought the death wobble in my 92 Dodge at 225k miles. Put a kit on with two shock absorbers across the front axle and viola. So as per my original question why ask about a death wobble in a 2020 if none have been reported? Especially, in a suspension that is a different set up than anything made. Sounds like a bunch of pearl clutching to me.

The F250 DW issue has been reported since as far back as 2005 over several different suspension setups.

I have fought death wobble on a number of solid front axle vehicles, especially those with a panhard bar equipped suspension design. I am sure that with adequate wear on the suspension components, death wobble could occur on my Tremor, but doubt it will be an issue for a long time.
