How do I Tell the stealership about a shake at 100 MPH. If I want to take this truck to the drag strip and run it I feel the shake is really unnerving and dangerous!!!!!! It starts at around 85 MPH and gets progressivly worse the faster I go!!!!!! :help: Please HELP!!!!!!!!!! :help: Will the stealership flip that I am going that fast??

I think you are referring to the "death wobble"....run a search for it.

no deathwobble is different, it's your tire bouncing up and down after you hit a bump or your track bar (which 1500's don't have) being worn out/broke

This is showing itself on the Powerwagon as well at high speed. I was considering going to the dearler as well about it ... just didnt know what to say.

I've worked in the tire and wheel industry for years, and I can tell you 99% of the time a high speed "wobble" or vibration is from a bad tire. The dealer is going to have a fit over it, but the two quick checks are to 1. rotate the tires the see if the wooble moves. 2. swap tires and rims from another truck and see what happens. If the wooble moves or goes away, you've found the culprit.

You also got to think, the stock tires aren't rated for high speeds. Once they get hot enough and they're spinning fast enough, the tire starts changing shape. Almost like a dragster tire narrows out with the high rpms. Just not as drastic.

Do this.

Tell them you inspect runways at airports where you are required to drive at that speed between airplane landings. State your problem.
