rockhard98 Yes death wobble is when your front end/steering is shaking going down the road, it means your front end is walking side to side while your driving, typicaly when referred to being really bad wabble in the steering or axel

Wish_Master_3 ok people talk about the death wobble what exactly is that im out here at my jeep now and tighten all the bolts on the track bar every where i saw one and it still pops while im stittin still it sounds like it coming from the right side and it only makes the thunk or pop when im turing the wheel from the right towards the left so IDK but like a said before my steering wheel wobbles and shakes is that what everyone is talkin about?

rockhard98 Check your track bar bushing on the axel side, mine was doing the same thing, have some body watch it while you wiggle the steerng wheel, you should be able to see it catching, if so its just slop due to the bushing being bad, you can try to tighting the bolt for a temp fix, but replace it soon or you'll find your self with the ever famous death wobble, hope this helps

Fire Jeep check your sway bar links. When I bought mine it was already lifted and they didn't put at least discos/longer links and one snapped at the joint, it was kinda doing the same thing. just a thought
