Caster and Toe degree/ Death wobble
1 Attachment(s)
Hey guys, new member to the fourm but not a stranger to the site. I know there are many many threads and posts related to death wobble and god knows ive read them all, but heres my situation.

I installed the Rubicon Express 3.5" Standard lift last weekend. Its a basic lift nothing special but was prepared to get parts as needed. I started getting the wobbles this week and went to 4 wheel parts to get aligned, they did the alignment the best they could without axle cams. So i bought a set and they installed them and brought the castor and toe into spec as best he could. (see image)

I still have the wobble when hitting a bump. Everything is stock except the new sway bars, springs, and shocks. I have currently on order an adjustable track bar. Im hoping this will do the trick, but while Im waiting id figured I would get some opinions.

All tie rods and bolts are tightened and in good condition. I posted the alignment report so you knowledgeable guys could opine.

It is a 2003 TJ X

You alignment report looks fine - clearly the same software as was used by the guys who did mine. I took mine in for alignment after I did my lift install as I got a serious DW some blocks after taking it for the first ride and there was nothing that they could adjust - everything was in spec.

The next morning I loosened the four control arms in the front, bounced the suspension a bit and then torqued them to spec - my DW is completely gone. Costs nothing but a little bit of time.
