New Daystar 1 3/4 spacer installed, now death wobble!

Hello everyone,

I need some information about the death wobble?

I had recently professionally install a set of Daystar 1 3/4 spacer on my Jeep TJ, but after it being installed, I got the infamous Death Wobble!

Have anyone experience the same problem after installing a budget boost from Daystar?

What can I do beside having the spacer remove to get rid of the Death Wobble? Any advice will definitely will help.

I'm not too experienced in this area, but here's a thought. Have you checked your balljoints?

I replaced both sides, upper & lowers and have never experienced the D. Wobble.

Wish you luck with this, it's a nasty situation/condition.

I just installed the Daystar 3/4 lift on my JK and haven't had an alignment done. It doesn't look like it's gonna be necessary but I'm watching it to be sure. Not to hi jack but is there any way you can tell if you need an alignment without experience DW?

I had a bb and spacers put onto my 06 Rubicon. Major DW. After several weeks of every possible adjustment and correction, I switched out the blue (don't remember the brand) spacers, and installed Spidertrax hubcentric ones. End of DW.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions, I had checked everything and found out that the track bar and tie rods to be loose and defective. I replaced them and had a front end alignment and so far no Death Wobble.

Will let you guys know, it's only been 300 miles of no DW.

My suggestion before installing any BB, is to check all suspension and determined if they need to get replaced before installing the Budget Boost.
