Unhappy I Need a Lift, I Need a Price!

I'm done with it, the death wobble is gonna kill me. I've tried and so has everybody else to adjust, tighten, and replace everything under my 2003 TJ. I've wasted too much time and money. I'm replacing the whole suspension. It has four inches now. I want at least four inches when I'm done. Long arm, short arm, I don't care. What's the best value, price and performance, installed? (I'm too old for this s__t!) Thanks.

well i would leave the lift kit, its not the kit thats making to vibes, its the driveline angle waht you need is a CV/SYE kit, to change the driveshaft so it accomadates the lift

this is what you need if you are having vibes

You can get dw with any lift, so changing it may or may not solve the issue. Did you balance the tires yet?

It's death wobble.

It has had this wonderful wobble for over two years now. Does it whenever the right front tire hits a dip, left front could care less about any pothole. I've replaced the trac bar, re installed the old trac bar, had a DPA, took off the DPA, put it back on, had it re aligned, got new wheels, had it speed balanced (twice at different places) Checked the axles, the hubs and spindles, the brakes, re checked with and without a front driveline. It just frikin' loves to do the hippie hippie shake!! I'm starting to not like my baby, I want to fix it. Help.....please...

dw

for what ever it is worth,
i had a case of it, was driving me nuts. checked everything i could think of, including tire balance (not sure about high speed part) was about to strip all fe components when, finally someone suggested rotating tires and poof, all gone. I can only guess i had some belts shifting or bad wheel weld or something. Pretty shortly afterwards, replaced all tires and wheels, still no re-occurance (upped fm 30-33's)

steering stabilizers just hide it.

It could be loose or worn balljoints if its just the right side that starts it. But it could also be an out of balance tire or out of alignment.

One thing that is often overlooked is the TRE that is part of the draglink, have you replaced the draglink?

What is your caster angle set at? Are you running aftermarket control arms? Are they adjustable?

Pull out all your control arms, check the control arm bushings, track bar bushings, etc. No use replacing the whole system if none of the ends/bushings are bad, you would be just throwing money away. A few hours of whenching could save you quite a bit of money.


If your dead set on replacing the system, I would go with a Full Traction Ultimate short arm system, everything is adjustable(all uppers and lowers, and front track bar), no cheesy rear trackbar brackets (doesnt need a rear trackbar), The poly bushings last alot longer than the notorious failing RE bushings. I had it for a year and a half before upgrading to my LA. With the triangulated rear it flexed great, and handled great and the ride quality was equal or better than stock!

Here is the kit

Order it here <Great vendor to deal with!

Control arms

I'm pulling the control arms next, I keep thinking, "hell it should be fine", but I'll pull 'em anyway. Problems are always the last thing you check. I'm just tired. Thanks to all of you. I'll figure something out. oh, yeah, Caster angle is right (had that done last time I was asking WF) The DW isn't as bad as it was before the angle adjustment, but it's still there.
