Newbie

Hi all,
newbie to this site.
I'm in need of help. I Bought a lifted Jeep Wrangler last year. On several occasions my car will shake and wobble, it feels like its falling apart, extremely scary. I've had the shaking occur while driving at low speed (25 mph) and higher speed (65 mph) I've had to take my car into Jeep at least a dozen times to try and get this problem fixed. Every time I take it into the dealership to get it repaired, they usually take a week or two to fix the problem. When I get the car back I'm overly cautious of my driving. however, a month or two down the road, the shaking occurs again. I've never taken my car off roading, or mudding.
I love my car, and I don't want to get rid of it, but if I can't get this problem resolved I'll have no choice but to sell it.
suggestions please..

Thanks

Read the first two posts in this thread: Diagnosing Death Wobble and Fixing Non-DW Shimmies and Wobbles

After that, depending on the year model of your Jeep, to the JK/TJ/YJ/CJ section, and drop this post on em.

This is just where we greet new peeps. Welcome to WF!

I think kbwwolf and dabolt55 are spot on but because this is the newbie check-in area, you may not get the answers you are looking for. I suggest you also check out this area and post you questions there:

JK Jeep Wrangler Forum - Jeep Wrangler Forum

In the mean time . . .
