When people drive by you on the way to the beach for only an hour later try to wave you down to help pull them out when you pass them again. Priceless.

I was scared $#!less when I saw the "death wobble" on my brand new to me jeep! It's an '06. I had never seen anything like that. After I got home I YouTubed the hell out of the death wobble. My husband replaced the steering stabalizer bar (or whatever it's called) and we got new tires/rims. It's super solid feeling now. In addition to a fun-time-toy, it's also my daily driver, I was freaked out to go the speedlimit on the freeway for days! I'm over that now. But I still like the slow lane!

Search the forums here about it, too. The steering stabilizer is likely just masking the real problems.

Try getting your axle over top of the loop in the road. Closer the metal is to the loop better chance you'll have of it triggering. (I put traffic sensors in road & mess with loops everyday....)
