Shaking Like Crazy..Need Help

Hi i was wondering if anyone could tell me whats wrong with my jeep. Every once and a while i will hit a bump, could be going 30 or 65 doesnt matter, and my jeep will start shaking side to side violently. i will hit the brakes and ride it out and it will stop and it will drive fine again for a while. Does anyone know what this could be. It seems to be happening more and more regularly.

Look for "Death Wobble". I think there is even a sticky for it. The most common reason is out-of-balance tires, but there are quite a few others.

Well, not really. Mine would happen at ~52mph, but not all the time. I replaced a broken steering stabilizer and got new tires with a "road force" balance and it disappeared. Note that just the steering stabilizer alone may "fix" it, but it's really just covering up the problem. There are few other reasons like track bars, control arm bushings, general alignment, et cetera. I can only talk with experience about mine, so other posts have tons more info.

Are you running stock? Do you still have the stock tires?

I had the same thing on my '05 LJ. The steering damper had gone bad, it was covered under warranty. Speed was not a factor, I only had to hit a bump and the front end went crazy on me.
