35 mph death wobble after proper toe in
I have a 2000 tj sport w 6 inch lift and 37" wranglers pre kevlar w/4000 miles on em.
the jeep drove great the only thing that i didn't like was if you correct quik it could be a scary moment, i checked the toe in and and it was 4/16 toed out so i followed the instruction from the stickie and got it a perfect 1/16 toe in tickled pink i was. anyway i straightened the steering wheel as per stickie and i was ready for a test ride...all was well, it didn't seem to be so skitsie when correcting and and had just a very mild meander at 65.
then me n the wife went for a spin and when we hit some pothole repair type bumps at 35 mph we got the death wobble that wouldnt let up till we stopped.
i checked the track bar for tightness, perfect and the vehicle has had every bushing and fitting replaced just 4000 miles ago and i'm under it weekly banging with a rubber mallet and shaken linkages etc. i let the air down from 33/32 to 29/28 as my last resort and at exactly 35mph if i hit a pothole it starts a wicked shake and will not subside till completely stopped.
I am going to probably just put the toe in to zero or back to toed out to 4/16
as it ran just about perfect then. it may get at most 3000 miles a year but i drive it daily.
i'm hopin someone may have another quik fix so i can keep it toed in.
i have read every post i could find on here and other sites but i never heard of a perfectly (almost) driving jeep start after a proper alignment.
edit: when i hit bumps below 35 the steering sort of has that manual steering feeling like a real solid back and forth....i never noticed that before todays toe in either
I was up late last night partying until 6 in the morning, naked and with complete strangers. That was one hell of an Xbox live party.
