Steering suspension

Is an upgraded steering suspension really worth it ? Does it take away the death wobble ? I just got mine aligned and they said it was good to go. I have a 4in lift with 33's. thinking about get the rugged ridge orv.

Have you read the DW sticky? 4" is very high for 33s. Why so much lift?

Suspension changes if not done correctly or cheaply is like opening a can of worms.
Like ESP said. 4" is a lot of lift esp for a 33" tire.

The lift was on there when I bought it . I was going to throw some 35's on it so I left the lift alone . The lift is done extremely well it's just when I go to stop I get a little wobble . Not all the time just some times , more if the road is nice . Now a days thought that's every road. The dealership was even shocked when I brought it in for an oil change on how flawless it was ( the dealer that sold it to me rofl) but ill check out the thread thanks!

Only reason I was comfortable buying with a lift is the area and the lift he put on it . Area being the guy had some cash to spend , and replaced everything with teraflex. Struts shocks ect.

Alrighty , took a look at the forum, called Tera flex for exact lift info, apparently it's a 2.5 for a 4 door and 4in for a 2 door which seemed kinda extreme in the difference . But never the less it has upgraded control arms and An adjustable trakbar, I'm thinking one of two things ..... Bigger tires or the steering suspension . (50 bucks)

Is there any thing else I should look into ?

TERA has coils for 2 door and 4 door.
If you already have coils ... Upgrade your steering

What condition is the front track bar in ?
Tie rod ends X4
Ball joints
There's a bolt kit available to replace all lower ca bolts and TB's.

If your wobble is not bumpsteer upgrading these parts should fix your problem.

If you are getting wobble in the steering wheel during braking you could have a warped front brake rotor. If that is your problem it is a cheap and easy fix. Most parts houses can turn down the rotor and even it up if it's not too bad.
