Anyone know of a fix for the wobble in the IFS trucks?

it's mainly an 06-08 thing, because the redesigned IFS on the 3.5 gen 1500s sucks.

Mine is an 06 and I have noticed a little wobble from time to time since I put the new wheels and tires on,not bad but noticable every once in a while. I would like to find a fairly cheap fix.

i added firestone riderite airbags on my truck and i'm still searching for a bump to make my truck do that again. or you could put a hellwig anti-sway bar on. I heard that both do almost the same thing, but i put a lift kit in my truck and the airbags were a great way for me to level the back end out and take care off that "death wobble" the city here shaved the one bump that always did it to me, but haven't had a problems since i have installed them. they costed me about $300

I was thinking that you guys were crazy until R!'s post. I bought my truck used with 10k miles on it and the previous owner put air bags on. I've never experienced anything like what you guys describe. Maybe air bags are the solution?

What are you guys experiencing that you're calling "death wobble"?

For me it feels kinda like both front tires are out of balance then it will just go away without any change in speed or anything.

Imagine going down the road and hitting a slight bump and having all four tires feel like they were really loose and about to wobble off the axles while trying to keep your truck in your lane cause its bouncing all over hell.

I thought alot of the 4x4's came with solid front axles. Or possibly the TRX4 packaged trucks....
