Okay, so I have been pushed all over the place by this dealership, and I finally had to contact upper management to get any feedback on my Jeep (they have had it since last Friday, started looking at it Monday). I was just informed via email that there were two recalls on it and that they are replacing my tires to fix the wobble. In all the research I have done, it doesn't seem to me that simply replacing the tires is going to fix my death wobble. What do you guys think? Do I push it further or wait and see what happens?

They haven't emailed me back with exactly what the two recalls were yet that they are diagnosing. I am still a little confused as to why I was not informed about these by them, but I am going to take it one step at a time.

Let them replace all they want for free.
Once they are done, if its not fixed, they will be giving you more free stuff to fix it.

I would wait n see

Okay that's what I was thinking. I needed new tires in the next couple of months anyway, so I wasn't going to complain until after those were on (they owe me more than new tires at this point).

Thank you

Tires? did they ever re-center the steering wheel? I'm willing to bet your ball joints are shot. Jack up the front so the one of the wheels are off the ground. Grab the tire and see if there is any play up and down in it.

They have not recentered the steering wheel, I can't get anyone to call me back or respond to my emails quickly so hopefully I can tell them to recenter the steering wheel whenever I do finally get in touch with them.

I have been researching all of the possible recalls they could be talking about, and I saw ball joints listed as one I believe, I am hoping this is one of the two they are working on. I wonder how mad they will get if I jack it up 10 feet from their service station and have my friends take a look at it before we leave?

The ball joints are not a recall, but might be a TSB. There is a big difference.

I agree, let them replace the tires for you. I havent heard of that being a cause for what is happening though, but if they want to to rule that out, by all means, let them. Then afterwards, since it won't be fixed, tell them to do the ball joints while they are at it.

I read this article that says they are recalled, but you never know about some of the articles online! Of course this is just from an online magazine, not from the real Jeep people themselves...

I don't think that necessarily said they were under recall, I think it was just saying to keep in tough with the dealer to assure no open recalls are on your Jeep. I haven't seen that article before, but it looks to just talk about some issues that need to be addressed at some point.

Here is what it says:
Quote:
It seems like every other month there is a new diagnostic computer program upgrade for the '07-present Wrangler. Keep in touch with your local dealer to stay on top of the necessary recalls and updates. You should be able to find out if your Jeep needs any updates simply by giving the local dealer your VIN number over the phone.

You can also go to Jeep.com and type in your VIN to see if there are any recalls for your vehicle.
