Ford Motor Company is recalling some 2019 model year F-Series Super Duty F-250 and F-350 vehicles over an issue with the front axle.

The defect: affected vehicles are equipped with front axles that may contain a wheel end yoke that was not properly welded to the axle tube end.

The hazards: an improperly welded attachment may cause steering effects that could impact vehicle control. This may include pulling to the right or left, misalignment of the steering wheel or change in steering sensitivity that could affect the response of the vehicle to driver input during a hard-braking event, increasing risk of a crash.

Ford is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to this condition.

Components: axles.

  1. Ford has had so many recalls that it is reduclous.I was considering buying a Ford F250 but after hearing about the death wobble,seat belt that when the bucket hits the carpet and can catch on Fire,other recalls and now a suspension problem that the yoke was not welded properly to the axle.I really don’t know how Ford is the best selling Truck in America.

  3. My 2019 F250 with 10,800 miles has the death wobble and was built 11/18 at the Kentucky Plant according to the Vin Door Tag. Either the dates above are incorrect or Ford is going to try and screw me saying my truck is outside the effected date.
    The steering wheel shake is so bad my wife refuses to ride in or drive the truck.

  4. My 2018 f250 crew cab 6.2 4×4 has done this death wobble since I bought it with 21k miles on it. Just recently I have had it do it 3 different times. I took it in to have the front end parts inspected and we didn’t see any noticeably worn parts. We rotated the tires, but it’s still Squirrely! There’s 54k miles on it. Imperfections in the roadway will set it off.
