Trac Bar. ^.^

okay let me start by saying I'm not a mechanic nor anywhere close. But I am also not stupid I can figure out basic things. I recently started getting into wheeling a lot more then what I had. Well when I did I noticed my death wobble was starting to come back. And when I started checking stuff underneath I noticed my trac bar has a lot of move in it. Is this something bad or is that normal?

On a TJ having a loose track bar will definatly cause a problem, coil suspensions need them to keep the axle in alignment

Having it a little lose might be enought to cause DW, if you can make it move with your, then imagine vibrations and bumps and a big heavy vehicle while going 60mph

Time to upgrade to a better track bar, It shouldn't move.

Quadratec has a couple of aftermarket ones, I'm not sure how much better they are though

Track Bars - Quadratec

(You might have to change the Jeep to a 2000 over on the left)

Yeah as long the inner part of the bar itself isn't worn out, but if the bushings are just bad then new ones should fix it

Guess i'm gonna look for bushings the bar shouldn't be worn. I'll take it to a shop tomorrow to make 100 % sure. Thanks for the help =)
