DeAtH WoObeL Cause

Finally go it but now got to get rid of it.!!!

Doesn't happen till over 60 MPH on highway.....

Just replaced front u joints and oil seals

Track bar ends appear tight when I try to wrench on them....passenger side bushing is soaked in oil though

All the bolts I tested seemed tight to wrench except ... the frame mount of there sway bar on the passenger side. ..(would that be enough to make it woobel?? ..........

Front ...P235/75R tires now have 27 lbs in each

steering stabilzer shock looks ...ooooo..old

did you just balance them, or did you get new tires? Cause if you got new tires i suggest somewhat of an alignment.

I have not replaced them yet. I threw on another set I already had mounted on other wheels which solved the problem...for now

do you need new tires? it is probably just a balancing issue. I mean if the tires look fine and it only happens a around 60 then the "high speed" balancing is no good.

i had a lady yesterday here at the shop...just moving the car to get into the bay the wheel was all over the place. Her tire was out of round...should have heard her cursing her kids..lol

I did have them balanced and got them back last night..after I road tested them they now work fine at least up to 75.....amazing!! Anyway hopefully that was the problem and the wobble has gone away...for now!

Deatb wobble ( true dw) the front tyres actually come off road and create a " death wobble"
But any little thing out of ordinary folks are incorrectly calling death wobble
Trust me, , true death wobble wont bother you sligbtly, but scare the living obama out of you!
