Good Truck, Hard to Control
By Jay on
2006 Ford F-250 Super Duty XL 4dr Crew Cab SB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)
I am actually writing this about my Father's experience with his 2006 F250 4X4 Gas Pickup. Overall he is pleased with the truck except one serious issue, which I believe is limited to the gas engine model of the 2006 F250. If you hit a rough patch of pavement the truck will virtually bounce and skip all over the road out of control. There are many complaints of this issue on the internet. Ford has TSB for this issue but it does not fix the issue. Has anyone found a fix? A local front end shop says they may be able to fix it with different springs. Seems Ford uses the same springs for the Gas and Diesel models, but the Diesel weighs almost twice as much, which causes excessive rebound.
Towing capacity, capability, styling, overall quality of most components.
Ford should accept that the Steering/Suspension problem needs to be fixed beyond what is suggested in the TSB. Our local service manager has acknowledged the problem and sympatizes with us, but says he cannot do anything further until it is recognized and sanctioned by Ford.
