2010 ram 1500 2wd with 2" leveling kit "death wobble "
Iam having a major dilemma with my truck. I purchased my truck with a leveling kit already installed. Truck recently stated to wobble at highway speeds making uncomfortable to drive. All I know it's a steel spacer and still has factory shocks. I gotten the truck aligned at the dealer but no good. Someone please help!

I would check to make sure you don't have worn parts like ball joints, tie rods, etc.

That's what I plan to do tomorrow. Iam going to take it to an alignment shop that I know does quality work.

is it just a vibration/shudder...? or the actual "death wobble"

the death wobble is horribly violent. Have you seen videos of it??

The truck vibrates and the steering wheel wobble a lot at 50 mph and up.

Did this just start? Have you made sure the tires are balanced correctly or you may have a bent rim? Never heard of a leveling kit doing that.

Number one, it isn't death wobble. Actual death wobble is only possible in solid axle front ends such as a 2500/3500. Your 1500 has IFS....

I would definitely be checking the front end parts such as the tie rod ends, ball joints, etc. That would be the first place. Verifying the alignment would be a good idea but a small misalignment shouldn't cause that kind of issue.

Wheels being out of balance would also cause a vibration and wobble. I would have those checked as well. Also, do you have stock or aftermarket wheels? If they're aftermarket and not hubcentric that would cause that issue as well.
