Is there some place (website) to check against VIN to see if my truck is affected? I have had front end issues since the truck was new.
I experienced the "Death Wobble" one time late last year. Frickin' truck shook violently.. felt like the wheel lugs were loose.
The front-end sometimes feels like I'm driving over rebar (or that the bands in the tires are letting go).. hard to describe, but there is a definitive vibration being felt. I can feel the vibration from 5-10 kmH and onward. The problem is still there even by shutting off MDS (Going into 5th gear).

I really hope the ball joints are okay.
I'll be doing the recall for the underhood light and glove-box light... maybe I'll mention the front end issues to the dealer.
