Steering Stablizer
 
Ive been getting the death wobble at around 55mph. My tireas werent that great so i got different ones. The death wobble stoped for like 3 days and now its back. Most people say try a new steering stablizer, can anyone recommend me a good one? Prolly gonna try to lift it so is there one thats good with a 3" lift and 33s? Thanks

I have a BDS steering stabilizer on my 3" lift and i think it works well. Also life time warranty.

Unfortunately all a steering stabilizer will do is "band aid" the real issue. Something is causing the DW: worn out suspension components, tires need balanced, etc

A steering stabilizer is a critical component of the steering. Having a worn out stabilizer is like having worn out shocks and will perpetuate the wear of all the steering components.

As Cubalz said, a steering stabilizer is never (!) the cure for Death Wobble. Think of installing a steering stabilizer to try to cure DW as placing a band-aid on a skin cancer... it may mask/hide the symptoms but it's not curing the true root problem.

Find the real source of your DW... like an imperfectly balanced tire, loose track bar, etc. and DW is normally a combination of a couple things like those two items just mentioned.

I have the ProComp and though I wasn't too fond of their products (meaning their suspension lift from another jeeper), I love it. It hasn't been giving me ay problems *knock on wood of course*

Steering stabilizer won't fix your death wobble. Could lessen it for a minute, but won't actually fix it.

I had same thing i put a new steering stabilizer on cause mine was leaking and i had my front end alligned and problem solved for me. I had it real bad too.. Alot of things can cause DW.. mud on the rims, tires out of balance, lost a wheel weight, bent rim, bad tire, uneven wear on tires.. just start with the cheapest thing and work your way up

That was some very astute advice! :punk:
