    Default 2019 bi-turbo Ford Wildtrak suspension.

    I bought myself the new Ford wildtrak. I had the guys from Ironman fit a adde leave system to it, with foamcell pro shocks. After the installation I have a vibration when pulling away. What can be the problem? What can cause the vibration? It seems that it is only when pulling away.

    Did the suspension changes result in a lift?

    Why did you do the suspension?

    I'd go straight back to the installer. Let them drive with you and then sort it. If they don't get it right, let them revert your bakkie back to standard. But that's me...
    Hope they can sort it for you. That is a nice bakkie.

    If there is a lift in the back, the increased angle of the drive shaft may be causing the vibration.

    You may need a spacer to drop the center bearing slightly.

    Have them check the angle of your drive line, if the angle is to acute then it can cause vibration as well. Should be easy it fix! Keep us posted.

    I am sure this is your problem.

    Is it a vibration or a shudder?

    I also go with the centre bearing spacing causing your shudder.
    Apart from the glitch, how does the ride feel. Does it feel safe cornering or does it wallow. Do you think the cost was worth it.

    I would go back to standard setup. It doesn't need any after market drive terrain upgrades IMHO

    The Ranger has a 127" wheelbase, and hangs over the smallest bump. I had mine for 4 years and it was my single biggest issue with the vehicle. A small lift front and back to increase the break over angle did wonders!

    Amarok has a 122" wheelbase.
    Isuzu has a 122" wheelbase.
    Hilux has a 123" wheelbase.

    The 4-5" difference makes a massive difference!

    What suspention did you put in. I had the OME system fitted by Safari centre, and had the same problem, and OME do supply a wedge to go in under the diff to change the angle little bit, that actually comes with the kit, and that solved my problem, although I still had a slight vibration for the first month or so when I pulled away, until the hole system setteld in, I just sold my wildtrack with 100Kilos on and never had an issue again after that, and I fitted my suspention when the bakkie only had 10km on the clock.
