Wobble issues, anyone can lend me a hand?

Dealing with wobbling at 45mph...trying to figure out what it is, finding out if it's tire related or not without dropping $600 for new tires is tough. Anyone willing to lend me a hand? Maybe swap wheels with me so I can test drive and figure out if my rims/tires may be bad? Any help/recommendation would be nice...

I just addressed this exact issue with my Jeep, today, well yesterday now. My sway bar was completely disconnected. Might check and see if your sway links are loose? If they're worn out beyond repair, go pick up a set for $30 each. I put just one on, and it helped tremendously. Gotta get the bracket for the driver's side welded tomorrow, put that one on, and it'll be awesome.

I'll check tomorrow after work (well, today that is, I have to be "up" in 3 hours...). I'll disconnect and reconnect the sway bar. I don't think it's ever been disconnected so I'm not sure. I did order new trackbar bushings, I'm hoping I can get those on without too much hassle, considering I have next to no real tools to work with.

Where can you pick up sway bar links anyway? Advanced auto?

Got mine at O'Reilly's. Don't know if it's a regional thing, but the employees there are much more helpful than Advanced. If you have any questions after you check them out, feel free to ask. BTW, you'll need a good set of sockets (17 mm and 19 mm are mostly used), a ratchet, a BFH, a set of set of Allen wrenches (size under 10 mm mostly), and a good can of PB blaster, if you go the sway link route.

Its probably your trac bar. They're sensitive as hell. If there even a little loose it will give you crazy death wobble. Also check to make sure that the bracket holding the trac bar on is tight. I doubt you will be able to get those bushings into your trac bar without a hydraulic press

Mines wobbling bad at 50-55. Probably has something to do with my fishtailing into a 12" curb (and cracking the rim) over winter. Debating between an alignment and driving lessons to remedy the situation.
