khoavu Thanks everybody, especially blkrubi88. I am in Houston TX, and very ignorant about Jeep. I just bought it because it looks like a man's car. Most Asian loves to drive a Japanese car. I just love Jeep. I really want to fix my wangler to have that feeling of thant American car again. Thanks for all help and advice. I still can not find a way out yet.

s3nt3nc3d What size tires? If they're stock size, put them at the pressure listed in your door jam. If they're larger, lower the pressure more than that...I ran 31" tires at 28ish psi and I run my 33's at around 26psi. You could go a little lower than that even...but since I don't off-road much, that gets me better gas mileage.

Death wobble is often caused by worn steering/suspension components...usually a loose trackbar. Check for play in your trackbar. Also I think I remember reading that worn tie-rod end links can cause issues as well. This is all stuff that can be fixed pretty easily if you have a decent tool set.

khoavu Hi! Coyote2.
No.I saw the tires pressure instruction in the manual and did it. I just drive the jeep in town, NO offroad. Then it happened. I did suspect because of the pressure that started it. I put it down to 32 as from the beginning. But it did not help.

CoyoteOn2 35 PSI ? That's pretty high for the Jeep. It's not a Heavy Vehicle. You carry a lot of Cargo, or have heavy Bumpers and Accessories?

Is there a shop to fix Death Wobble for sure?

HI! My name is Khoa Vu, a Vietnamese.Is there a shop that can fix this Death Wobble. I love jeep and bought a 2008 Wrangler unlimited X. I bought it since I had my 97 Jeep Cherokee and It never failed me. I bought it used from a Lexus dealer. I never had a problem. I still drive it. So I decided to buy this wrangler. I never heard or know about this DW in all my driving years. Now is the death wobble and it disappoints me so much. I bought the wrangler in June 2011 and did not have any problem till Jan 2012 after I put the air pressure to the tires to 35 Psi. The tires are Good year and the Wrangler has 58500 miles. I thought it was good for the car.But then the DW happened. I had Firestone fix the alighment and life time wheel balance. Then replacing the steering stabilizer. The DW is ongoing. Please help. Thanks a lot.
