Basically the jeep dosnt have a warranty cuz its over 7 years old but anyway was wondering if jeep will do anything if theres a recall or somthing for the wobble we were just on the highway doing 45 hit a bump and it was shaking like crazy. Not to the point of losing control but id say right before that had we been doing 50 55 she deffinatly woulda run off the road. If jeep doesnt do anything for it any recommendations as to what I should check to see about fixing it or replacing somthing?
Dneff, any vehicle that has front control arms and a track bar over a live front axle can have death wobble. It's the owners responsibility to properly maintain their vehicles. Like the previous posters mentioned there are things you can check. I would start with rotating your tires front to rear, do it yourself and it costs nothing. The next step would be to slide under the jeep with a small pry bar or heavy duty screw driver and see if there is any play at any of the control arm bushing or at the track bar. And lastly have someone turn the steering wheel back and forth, just to the point of resistance with the key in the on position, engine off. Look at every steering joint and see if there is play. The wheels shouldn't be moving when this is done. Hope that helps and let us know when you find the problem.
I know a lot of things, most of them are only correct in my own head...
Better to be judged by twelve then carried by six. I'm sure this is going to get me in trouble down the line
