Mine was about $60.00 for all 5 tires. They gave me a print out of where all 5 tires were (balance wise) after the road force balance. They can't get them perfect, but it definately cured my issues.

You could dynamically balance your tires with bb's to see if balance is you problem. You will still get wobble but at low speed. If you get it up to 60 and you have no wobble then it is your tire/wheel balance. If not then its something. Plenty of websites describe dynamically balancing tires with bb's. I wouldn't leave them in there, but they will let you know if you tires are the issue.

Check all of the rubber bushings in the front and make sure everything is tight.

Jeep engineers have taken jeeps on break test and after testing them they had to replace most of the rubber bushings in the front. They don't last. If your stablizer looks like that then I can only immagine how your bushings probably look.

Tires weight can be a problem along with the tires themselves.

the controll arm bushings might need replaced would that cause the wobble and shimmy or whatever you want to call it at around 57-70+ mph? because it doesnt seem to go away after i pass 55 which is where it originaly started. now it laste to 70+ mph havnt been any faster than that

It is possible. Jeep people do not have a perfect explination what causes death wobble.

Haha ok cool! And I wouldn't quite call it death wobble any more. Maybe a minor wobble not as serious as it was before. And thanks I'll let you guys know if the bushings fix it.
