jherrin215 I installed the budget boost about a month ago I guess, maybe a little longer and I checked that the studs didn't stick out, but I never retorqued the spacers. I just tightened the crap out if them and drove it. I was planning on retightening them when I put on the 33's.

JeepGuyLJ I think you have warped rotors cause the same thing happend to me and i found the problem, it was the rotors.

MR.CLIFFORD Make sure the original lug studs don't stick out past the mounting surface of your wheel spacers.

jherrin215 It had never done that before last night and it was pretty bad. I think I would have surely noticed it before then, but it may have been due to the brakes getting hot since I haven't ever driven it that far without stopping like last night. I was afraid maybe one of the spacers had come loose or something and was going to check it today.

Triple88a 3x warped rotors. Have some 1 machine them to get them nice and even and it should stop.. i can but you're far away... From what i know this happens because of stepping and holding on the brakes too hard

x2 - Had some warped rotors on my moms XJ and it was scary as hell to have to slow down at highway speeds. I didn't drive it again untill we replaced them.

MR.CLIFFORD I drove my junk with 1.5" wheel spacers for almost a year and never had that problem.

Wobbling in front end?

Me and a buddy went on about a 3 hour road trip today to pick up a set of tires and on the way home I hit the brakes going downhill at about 55 and got a very bad wobble from the front end through the steering wheel. I let off the brakes and it stopped after about 3 - 4 seconds. I hit them again and it did the same thing. I just installed spacers friday so I am thinking I possibly have a loose spacer? It drove fine, no pulling and no acting up whatsoever except when I hit the brakes those 2 times. I didn't notice it anymore other then those 2 times but I didn't hit them hard anymore either. Anyone have any suggestions to check other than the wheels spacers?? I figure this is the problem but I might as well see what everyone has to say before I work on it later. Thanks
