Thanks this helps! Had mine in recently and ended up being a stabilizing bar but no real problems. Had it bad in my earlier Jeeps

What caused the DW in mine (I have an '06 unlimited) was the trackbar. The bushings were bad. I bought the Jeep in December, and I got the DW fixed back in January, I haven't had any problems since, thank God.

The first video is what happened to me going about 60, I was merging onto the highway, I slowly applied the brakes and it went back to normal. It wasn't as scary as the video looks. . . but it was pretty darn shaky in there. Like a really, really, really badly paved road.

I had the Death wobble twice last month , found I had the right front tire only had 8 lbs of air in it and the tire did not look low, adding air fixed the problem

After lifting my 2103 Wrangler and adding 35" tires, mine started to wobble almost without notice and sometimes took a while to control. Took it back to the performance shop and they replaced my steering stablizer under warrantly cause it was leaking. Haven't had a problem since. I saw a later model JK on the interstate this week and it seemed to start with one wheel and the whole thing just about fell apart in the middle lane of the interstate. He made it to the edge safely.

I hate to break it to you man but that stabilizer is just masking the problem. You need to find the root cause.

Never mind, I just noticed you are driving a model from the future and its probably been fixed by then. I heard that the 2101's and 02's had bad motivators. have they been fixed yet?
