Dodge Ram Vibration/Pulsation/Bouncing



  • What could be broken that doesn't make a noise or feel loose? I have shaken my bed on all corners and its not loose... Or I guess a better question is what do I need to look for that would be broken on my diving board of a truck... HA...

    Well, where the bed secures to the frame (I guess you have a body on frame construction ??). Or if some supporting "rib" under the bed broke a weld. Basically, we're looking for anything that might allow the bed to "flex", like the sides of an oil can.

    Anytime you have a wide expanse of sheet metal you can get oil canning. Many American cars of the 70s with their huge front hoods had this problem.

    Another quick diag on vibrations, load the bed with some weight, maybe as much as 500 to 600 pounds. If vibration is gone you might be experiencing an unloaded rear ujoint vibration due to ujoint angles approaching severe. It might get worse with empty bed and low on gas. Or perhaps migh go away with a full tank of fuel. Just wanted to share that thought.

    Hello, I know this post is a bit old but I purchased a 2013 Ram 1500. My truck started vibrating at normal road speed 65-70 mph. Ive taken it to 3 different dealerships and still no resolution. I've talked to Ram and there comment is take it back to the dealership. I asked him if he knew the definition of insanity!!! I guess not.
    I'm looking for help. Legal advice. I put a huge down payment on this truck and bought an extended warranty.
    Recently bought new tires because the last dealership told me Rams are notorious for cheap tires. This did not help!!! It also cost me 1,000 dollars. I just want the truck out of my life. Do I have case or grounds to sue Ram or get them to give me money back? Any help would be appreciated

    It's quite possible this is a solvable problem. What's the deal with your extended warranty? Will it cover things like motor mounts or driveshaft?
