I experienced slight wobble and tread that exhibited one tread high and one tread low on the passenger side. My toe was definitely out after wheeling. This was unresolved for about 10k highway miles over the last month.
I utilized the amazing checklists and videos from the stickys in this forum to determine a few possible problems:
bad shock (causing tread wear)
damaged drag link end @ pitman arm
possible damaged drag link end at wheel
possible damaged tie rod ends
i have replaced:
switched damaged tire
swapped to shouldered bolts for front LCA and Track bar
I will be replacing the drag link end at the pitman arm with MOOG ES3624
Rear LCA to shouldered bolts
Remaining three shocks
I will re-preform the "Death Wobble Diagnosis and Inspection Jeep JK Wrangler " inspection and and verify any other problem areas. That being said, if i do find that the wheel side drag link end is bad or the passenger side tie rod end is bad, does this necessitate replacing the entire drag link and tie rod?
Am I correct in understanding the only ends replaceable on the drag link and tie rod are the drivers side ones?
Is there anything else I am not considering?
Thank you all!
