help DW?? i dont know...

ok i just got a 2004 wrangler sport has a little over 100,000 miles on it. i think i might be having DW as i seen it called. i don't know though. My wrangler is stock. no lift no big tires, nothing.

my problem is when i hit a bump. manhole or something like that between 40 and 60 mph i get a wobble or shimmy in the front right side. sometimes it get into a rhythm to the point where i have to slow down under 40 to get it to stop. the thing i having trouble with is that i never happens over 60 mph. i did 500 miles on the highway doing 70 and nothing. i drive 30 miles to work never going over the 55 mph and i hit a bump and sometimes i get a wobble. i just replaced the springs with stock ones and had a mechanic friend of mine look at it and he cant see anything wrong with it. the steering damper he said was good. ball joints and tie end rods were good as well. anything you guys and gals can tell me will be greatly welcome and passed on. i love my wrangler and want to make it right. thank you for taking the time to read my post.

Everyone seems to like JKS. I thing Rough Country is cheaper about $130. It comes with mounting hardware and eliminates that ball joint. If you replaced your coils you may want to check your alignment also.

What tire PSI are you running?
lower it to around 30 + -
start cheap then work your way up

That is what birdhunter says and I second that. I run my 33 inch tires at 27lbs.
