Suggestions: Ram 1500 Vibration Issue

30 posts in this topic

A couple of thoughts based on some of the conversations in this thread...

 

1... Throw a heavy load in the box to get the suspension to squat. If it smoothens out, it would narrow it down to the pinion angle or tires.

 

2... I'm not sure what transfer case you have, but if it happens to have a flange output instead of a slip-joint, pull the rear driveshaft and take it for a drive in 4wd.

 

3... If the front driveshaft spins at all times, try pulling it off and go for a drive in 2wd.

Wonder if they put in a higher rate coil in the rear when they started offering the crew cab and 6.5' box in the 1500's? And just use that coil in all of them? My 16 Crew/5.5' bed 4x4 is vibration free, have held it at 110 for miles, its actually stupid how good it will hold the road and be smooth over 100mph. You dont know you're going that fast until you look at the speedo.

Very helpful thread. Thanks for the comments. 

 

I just bought a 2012 Ram 1500 4x4. Till 75 mph it runs smooth no vibration. Over that, I can see the passenger seat vibrating and the water bottle in the console whips itself a mini tsunami. No vibration can be felt on the steering wheel though. 

 

Taking it back to the dealer tomorrow. Will print out the wheel balance info thanks to 345_CHLNGR. 

I knew it! don't trust everything that says smart, it might be smart for someone else not you!. 

 

Cheers.

I recently got a 2017 ram 1500 Hemi 

and I’m having the same issue with vibrations, between 30 to 60s miles/h 

dealer told me that balancing will be the solutions but still there after the fact...

its so annoying.... 

is there any recall or actual fix for this problem ? 

Thank you!
