When I bought the jeep a few years ago it was fine. Then last year it started only when I hit a bump at 47. Now I can't go over 45 period without the thing shaking apart. I have to drive 20 miles each way to work everyday and can now only take side streets at exactly 44mph lol. I'm in san tan valley.

I can look at it but i wont guarantee i can fix it. Theres a few common things that are easy to tell that cause dw but theres a few other things that are harder to diagnose. If i can figure it out buy me lunch and we will call it good. Does the jeep shake without the steering wheel shaking or does the steering wheel shake too?

The steering wheel shakes too. Its the first thing. I can feel it coming when the wheel wobbles a little at 44. I measured my alignment today and its perfect on both sides at 72 3/8". Air pressure is equal. The bolts on the two arms supporting the axle are tight. There is a lot more play in the steering wheel than there used to be.

Ok if the wheel shakes too is most likely somthing in the front end. A common cause is track bar bushings. They start to wear and this causes freeplay which allows the axle to move laterally causing dw. If your steering is sloppy it culd also be tie rod ends or drag link ends. Same issue they start to wear and allows for movement in your axle. Could also be balljoints going bad too. If youre running bigger then stock tires they tend to wear ball joints at a faster pace then stock

Sloppy steering could also be your steering box, especially if youre running over sized tires.
Go to a dealer to order bolts if youre running stock equipment or call the lift manufacturer and order new ones if youre lifted. Best possible chance to get the right sized hardware

Looking like the track bar even more now considering its to bent to even go back in

How did it bend? Any idea?

Probably from the daily wobbling. Anyone know a good shop in san tan, queen creek, or aj.

A little mexican tire shop and $75 fixed the problem.

What did they fix?

Apparently my camber is way off because I have stock upper control arms. He adjusted it by adding more weights in the tires. I'm due for new tires in a few months so when I buy those ill get the arms at the same time.
