Default 2009 Ram 1500 4x4 Has The Wobble

I added a 2 1/2" front spacer and a 7/8" rear spacer. Wobble showed up next day. Not real bad but it is inconsistent between 60-70 mph. Top Gun Customz is going to try a 2" front and leave the 7/8" rear spacers to see if the wobble goes away. I think I will just settle for 1 1/2" front and stock in the rear. My new Nittos and Moto Metals are awaiting the outcome.

...and this is different from stock where it didn't wobble? Stock wheels/tires or the new ones?

It evidently doesn't affect all 2009's. I will find out on Monday if the 2" or 1 1/2" lift works. I will post what happens. I just can't believe the shops are just now finding this issue.

The truck didn't wobble at stock height in 2wd or 4wd. With the lift the wobble is worse in 4wd starting from a stop, speeding up and going 30 feet.

Oh yeh, custom wheels are on there but not the new ones. Stock tires. These are wheels I have had on the truck for awhile now with no wobble.

I also have a 2009 and I put the 2" spacers on the front and nothing on the rear and my truck has a verry slight sland forward. It sit almost level. I think with out the rear spacer you will be verry happy with a 2" or a 1 1/2" spacer in the front. Good luck, I hope they find the problem, I was lucky and didnt have that problem.

I just talked to topguns and they say its just the luck of the draw. Some trucks are going to have it and some wont.

That is what they heard. You won't know until you put it on. Top Gun is great especially their tech guys.

This is the first one from all the guys that have leveled their trucks that I hear about the death wobble in the 2009's.
