|larjeep||It is the balance. U did not have a problem until u switched. And u will need to have high speed balance done. Road force.|

|Patrick H||TJ's seem to be very sensitive to front tire balance. I peeled the weights off of my RF wheel in some rocks, and I didn't even notice any "normal" tire balance vibrations, but @40-50MPH, I got a slight wobble in the steering wheel. I could feel it, and if i let go of the wheel, It would actually shake back and forth slightly. I re-balanced the tires, and the slight shake went away.|

|Jerry Bransford||Yep, speed sensitive vibrations/wobbles are nearly always nothing more than an imperfectly balanced tire. The job of a steering stabilizer/damper is not to cure or prevent that type of problem anyway.|

Speed related wobble usually points to wheel balance. (been there). TJs are very much subject to wobble between 45-55 if the wheels are not dead on for balance. Look into Road Force balancing. (Google it. The Hunter site will have a search for shops in your area that can do it)
The stabilizer is a 50/50. Moving it by hand will not really test that is is ok. Ifg you want a new one, a basic Monroe that costs around 30.00 from the parts store will do just as well as the more expensive big name ones.

Hey guys I have a question about my steering stabilizer. So I was running 30" bf Goodrich ats and switched to set of used rims and 31" Goodyear wrangler rts. I have a 2" lift (spring/suspension) Since this upgrade I started to feel some wobble at speeds more than 50-55. It's not death wobble just some vibration in front. Like the one you feel at the beginning of death wobble. I had death wobble but i fixed it by putting a bigger bolt in track bar mount. Tires are balanced and i do not see any loose steering components. The guy at the balancing shop told me that one rim needed a lot of weight so i put that in rear. Front tires are balanced well. So yesterday I unbolted the steering stabilizer to see if it was bad, but it seems fine too. although when I compress it, it was much tighter than if I uncompress it. Is that ok? I feel at least it is damping vibrations one way so it may be working a little. I know the only reason of vibration should be is something is loose. What is the best way to check it? I only have 64k miles on it and it has been offroad only a few times.
Any thoughts? Or what should I check next?
