    That's crazy. You'd think they would have figured this out by now. I've usually heard that it was related to after marker or wear, but a number of people have new stock trucks and are experiencing the same thing. :/
    I hope you get your truck back quickly.

    I just purchased a 2014 F250 diesel with 103,000 miles. I love this truck so far. I have not experienced what is being described in this thread but I have noticed, when hitting a bump with the front end, it wobbles just a bit for only for a second or two and it's minor in nature. I noted that the front shocks look new on this vehicle. I had stopped by the Ford dealer with the VIN number checking for recalls and there were none. There were several year models mentioned in this thread so am I right to assume this negative characteristic affects all year models? Please advise and thank you in advance!

    This is a problem with the 17+. As far as I know the 11-16's don't have the issue. I've never had the issue with my truck. And just because the shocks look new doesn't mean they are. I swapped to Bilsteins around 30k. My originals looked good on the truck, but I found leaks when I took them off.

    Reimbursement for my rental car has been approved. I'm now waiting for the check. My selling dealer, Horne in Apache Junction, AZ, was very instrumental in the reimbursement process. Since my truck is not a daily driver it will be May before I start putting the miles on it. I'll report back good or bad on how the repair went.
