First off… "i was really tempted to purchase a 10 plate wildtrack” !
What is this, what vehicle, what, what ?

I have never heard of a “Death Wobble” in a Ranger but that is just me, I guess !

If you were driving an Early bronco or a Solid Axle Converted Ranger, maybe but a standard Ranger… NOT !

Do a quick google search. This is what he is talking about

2010 Ford Ranger 4Door - Wildtrak, All Original - Philippines - 15669516

And yeah I've never heard of any death wobble in any Ranger.

You usually only get that in solid axle vehicles, which the ranger is not.

Thanks on that but yes I was fast enough to determine he wasn't from the states...

Tanks for the picture, I wasn't going to goggle on it.
It looks like the World Class Ranger is making its rounds; I hope it does not come to the US.

Ok back to the DEATH WOBBLE (DW)...
Is this Ranger a solid axle in the front ?
I was under the impression that the DW was a solid axle thing not a newer independent suspension problem ?
