Feeling nauseous driving my 2015 Willy

I need help getting my Jeep straight again. Two years ago I hit a curb (avoiding a full paint bucket) blew out a tire and replaced it. After 2 years of rotations and wear and tear on those tires they all needed to be replaced. 65k miles. Never had an issue or pull on my steering wheel.



I chose BFG KO2's all terrain tires not replacing with mudders but still the same size. I felt nauseous driving so I took it in to get aligned. 2 weeks after alignment my abs light turned on and my steering wheel became off center.



Since then I had it Re aligned, my sensor turned off and I replaced shocks (pro comp 2.0 same size) and struts all around thinking that too may be a problem.





I am still nauseous driving it. This is my 3rd Jeep over the past 20 years it doesn't have the death wobble. And I have never experienced car sickness in any vehicle as a driver or passenger. Anyone have ideas? I wished I would have traded it in before I came out of pocket 2k

Wow, I don't know dude. Could it possible be an exhaust leak or something not even related to the accident? Your saying car sick, definitely from the movement of the vehicle, or could it be something else?

Are they wide tires? check the air pressure if you just had them put on too much pressure and they will try to wander in the road. try 28-30 psi if you have 285-315s

Any chance you're pregnant?

Welcome to the forum. Do you get this way riding in other cars? Do you have access to another car to drive? Do you have a friend you could trade cars with for a few days and compare notes?

I will say when I drive without my front discos connected I get more body roll up front and have been queasy too at times. Especially around tight exit/entrance ramps. Kinda like hitting waves on a boat and floating.

I donít normally ride without them on the roadways, usually just to get home and wash the underside first to reconnect after removing all the mud.

Could you have something similar going on with a broken sway bar/connection?

Not prego, I don't get sick in other cars, I have been driving my wifes SUV with no issues, I feel that way with or without the top on so I don't think it's fumes, I still suck at golfing so no change there, 235-75-r15 size tires no size change just not mudders. I'm going to look into PSI and old doggers notes seem very handy on the shaking article. Thank you guys for having my back and helping me not to yack

I'll second Jedi9's suggestion on checking your air pressure. Seems the guys at the tire shops look at the max psi on the tire sidewall and that is what they inflate them to. At 65k miles I would also check all the steering and suspension components, could have something worn or a bolt loose causing problems.

Brandon, OD was just being friendly welcoming you to the forum. Are you sure you're not pregnant, or maybe a millennial?



There's a much better site over at wayolife that might be a better fit.


What tire pressure you running? You sure you're connected front and back? Sounds like motion sickness to me.

I expect the jabs, just like I expect people in Jeeps to wave back. Love it. Looking into the tire pressure now. I think we may have solved it. Thank you all! I should have checked their work. They had me at 42psi parked, did I mention I live in Las Vegas where it is currently 105 degrees! I lowered it to 34 and felt infinitely better driving on the freeway. (I felt like I was on roller skates before) I might go a little lower for the summer. I will come back to the board if anything else comes up. Thanks again! Brandon

Lift your floor mats and rugs. These Wranglers leak like a sieve. People don’t even realize it. The rain slides in UNDER the mat,soaking the rug,loading up with mildew. That’ll cause those Exact symptoms. I have spoken with FIVE total strangers (in parking lot conversations). Each one said that their JK Never leaks. I asked them to lift the rugs,and each one was Loaded with mildew. Two guys said their kids get sick every time they ride in the Jeep,and they themselves are always getting nauseous and headaches. Chrysler knows about this LONG standing problem and does absolutely nothing about it. Three of the JKs were one and two years old. I’m amazed that some Jeep owner/Lawyer hasn’t started a class action suit with these arrogant bastards. They charge outrageous money for these,and continue to ignore the water leak issues.

Well I thought the air pressure was the trick but unfortunately it was not. Luckily I was within my 30 day Discount Tire satisfaction guarantee. A buddy of mine previously worked in the business and he swears that one or more of the tires had to be out of round after he test drove it. I am not sure how the road force tire test missed it. They swapped out all of my tires with a different brand of A/T at no charge and I haven't been nauseous since. I asked if they would test my tires again but they refused. Oh well pays to go to Discount Tire.

Car sickness?

Any hearing problems? I used to do Sea Trials in 15ft+. seas with no problem. A couple years back some A..hole in the mountains decided to test out his .454 Casull to my left while we were winching a friend up to my right, I havenít heard a thing out of my left ear since. Had to have a friend drive my JK down, my ear was bleeding and thought Iíd puke at every wash on the way down. Couldnít drive w/o feeling sick for months. The fluid in your ears get thicker with age, that Casull I threw in the mud & watched a couple Jeeps bury it, and the beating I gave him afterwards didnít help my condition, but both helped me feel better while puking...Check the tire pressure too...
