death bounce???

When i am going down the street or highway and i reach about 45 i feel the back end start bouncing and the whole jeep starts to bounce while im driving. It feels like its coming from the rear passenger tire but all the lug nuts are tight and same amout of air pressure. I have had these tires on for about a year not and it just now started doing it. Please help me!!! I need my jeep loving familys help bad!

Probably jsut a severely imbalanced tire. Make sure your shocks are in good order too.

Have you rotated, and re-balanced your tires in the last year?

Try that first. Then look up one of the many other "death wobble" threads on here, and go through the check list.

Try checking suspension, tire balance, shocks. If all of those dont work, and you have dinged your driveshaft check that it may be out of balance or bent. good luck

There is a new "sticky" thread on TJ technical chat. Death Wobble. Go down the list.
