Talking Death Wobble

Just had my first experience with it, and didn't like it!! Felt like my JEEP was going to come apart right out from under me between 60 and 65 mph! I was really lucky though...all we had to do was to rotate my front tires to the back, and visa versa, and it's GONE!!

That's good to hear you solved it so easily. You should probably have a good balancing put on your tires/wheels too.

Now is a great time to make sure all of your steering components are tight. Check all of the bolts, and bushings, of your steering linkages. Check your track bar, especially, at each end. Look for loose bolts, and or, worn out bushings. Make sure you are in good shape.

Happy wheeling........

And as it was your first post on this forum.............WELCOME.......stick around, you will love it.

you didn't fix your problem with death wobble by rotating your tires.

check your track bar joints, that's where i had my problem
4" teraflex lift,adjustable front spring spacers,drop pitman arm,currie track bar,4.56 gears,detroit lockers,33x12.5 bfgs, magnaflow exhaust,KC lights,rock hard rear bumper w/ high lift jack and jerry cans

ummm ...more to come!
