valk1999 i just went through the death wobble experience. My problem was ball joints and NEW tires,even though My tires still had plenty of tread left. Check all,and I mean ALL of your nuts and bolts on your steering. In the past I was able to correct my death wobble that way, but this time the ball joints and tires added up to my problems. Good luck!

Actually I didn't. Is it hard to fix if they are?

I was thinking about replacing both sides anyway. Can't hurt.

Front end wobble

I have searched the threads trying to find a problem similar to mine and haven't had any luck. I have a 2004 wrangler se and my front end has the dreaded wobble. It doesn't do it all of the time, just at odd times. If I'm on a curve to the right, even a slight curve that doesn't have bumps, the wheels start to wobble; however, it doesn't do it on a left curve. I can get over 65 mph and hit mild bumps and it won't do it all of the time. If I'm around 45 mph and hit any type of bump, it wobbles. This is driving me crazy because sometimes on a straightaway, the right tire will just start to wobble. Now here is a list of the parts that I have already replaced:
Upper/lower ball joints both sides
Stabilizer shock
Track bar
Tie rod end on passenger side.
Had an alignment done.

Now there is also a very weird problem that may be related or may not. This ONLY happens when it rains. When it's wet outside and I attempt to turn my wheel any at all, I hear a slight thunk from the front end and feel a slight bump on the steering wheel. As soon as it dries up outside, the noise and bump are gone, so replicating this is hard. No matter how slightly I turn the wheel, thunk. No matter what direction, thunk.
Would greatly appreciate help guys.
