I’m having trouble with my daily driver. A 2011 f250 4x4 with 107,000 miles. When I’m driving the steering wheel randomly wanders left or right. Or it will stay straight but steering wheel will go left and right (10 and 2 o’clock) really fast all at random. Always under 50 mph. Has had alignment, both passenger tie rods, and center link replaced. What could it be?
Try putting new front shocks on, I know it sounds crazy, but new shocks fixed 90% of the steering issues on my 14 at 90k miles
They are about 7 months old. I just started pulling hub apart and the auto locking hub for 4x4 is cracked/broken. I’m going to try that first. It came out in 5 pieces instead of one. Problem is one auto locking hub is $175 unless I order online and wait for it.

Not a just a ford thing Dodges have the famous Death Wobble as well, mine was so bad you would have to come to a complete stop to stop the wobble. Was hell on my front end. I was able to fix mine with a new track bar and new steering stabilizer.
Ford Dodge Jeep and a few others. Never heard it on Chevy's like how often it was on the other brands. Its been happening to fords for like 15 years, the fact that they have done nothing to fix it for years is pretty baffeling.

Ive read that there is an aftermarket kit to beef up the front suspensions on the Dodges to help with this problem. Not positive if it is a bulletproof fix or if they make kits for others or not though.
