Mechanic needed - death wobble
 
Hey gang, I purchased a 2011 JK a month ago and it has the DW. I would like to find someone in the area that has experience working on this...I live in Oconomowoc (stone bank), any recommendations in the lake country, Waukesha, Brookfield areas? I took it to Wilde for an inspection, said nothing is wrong, recommended steering stabilizer. I heard that is just a band aid and doesn't correct the real issue...any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks

Don't have a mechanic for you and not sure that is going to help. Ask 10 people what causes death wobble and you'll get 10 different answers. You might want to check out the stickies in the JK Jeep Wrangler Forum area. Lot of good info on the subject. Good luck!

Thanks Spaste19...I have done a fair amount of reading but there are so many things that could be wrong I was hoping someone with experience could help me narrow it down. I'm gonna start withe the basic stuff and go from there.

I would take any recommendations on a good set of air tools to keep around the garage, I'd be starting from scratch

There are videos out there on how to cure it.

Most of my air tools are either Husky (Home Depot) or Harbor Freight. Not top of the line, but I've never had any issues. Put the money in the compressor.
Home Depot usually has some combo packs that are at a really good price when they are on sale.

Great, thanks...think I'm gonna throw some air tools on the Xmas list.
