Thanks and some questions

Hey folks been reading the boards on here for awhile now and have already saved me a bunch of Money and thank you for that! Ive been wheelin for a long tjme but recently picked up a 98 tj with 3.5 lift 33s,cb, sound bar, amp and sub. Rattle canned it back to black which came out well then clear coated it too. So I do have a few questions....

1. What channel is used for wheelin on the cb radio generally?

2. My right blinker works but no left, works sometimes with a wiggle of the hazard switch any thoughts?

3. Got the death wobble...not surprised but how much does a new steering stabilizer shock help things? It's a 98 so I'm sure it's beat.

Thanks for the help and great info on here!

19 is the most often used channel, truckers tend to run on it too. Proper etiquette, if you reach someone on 19, and want to carry on a conversation, both should switch to another channel so as not to tie up 19. It's ok for a quick back and forth, but if its going to be a long winded one, switch channels. 9 is for emergencies.

T/signal, most likely the switch is bad. Does it work if you put the 4 ways on?
If the left comes on but doesn't blink, then you have a bad flasher.

Stab will cover up but not fix the problem. It's usually the track bar bushings.
Track bar attaches to the right frame and front axle. If the bushing is worn it allows the axle to shift back and forth. Have someone turn the wheels back and forth as you watch the frame end of the bar. If you see it moving side to side it's bad.

You'll either need to replace the bushing or just replace the track bar. Also if it's lifted that much, the track bar is either relocated or replaced with an aftermarket unit normally.

Also check everything else under the front end for play. Ball joints, tie rods, pitman arm, drag link. And tire balance and irregular wear on the tires can aggravate the problem.
