Sounds like a bent axle shaft to me. Jack up that corner and spin the tire... It will "wobble" if the shaft is bent. You should be able to find shafts relatively cheap, or now is a good time to upgrade the rear axle shafts. Sort of a "might as well" thing.

Did you hit something. My ranger had a bent axle shaft front hitting a sidewalk curb in some snow. if you have new rims and tires then its more than likely a bent axle shaft.

I just bought the jeep 2 week ago. Its been like this since Ibought it. I cant feel the wobble while driving but whenever I have someone I know behind me they call and tell me my wheel looks like its going to fall off.

Can someone give me some ideas of a good axle to put on?>

yeah you have a bent axle shaft.

If you got the bling,bling then go all out and get a dana44, or 8.8 if your wallet is tight then I would just replace the shaft it would be the cheapest route. Shaft is probably $150.00 maybe just takeing a guess they are even cheaper at the salvage yard.

Well If im going put money into the rear im going to do it right! I just need to know what to do? LOL Whats the best thing I can do, I am getting a 4" suspension lift put on this month so I really want to make it great off road but yet make it very driveable on the highways and roads.

Throw a D44 in the rear and be done with it....I'm assuming your rear is currently a D35

If a D35 is stock then you got it! I am looking around online for the Dana 44, if any one has any good websites I can check please let me know.

Thanks

Jump under there rear quick and check to see if you have the 44 or 35. Drain plug in the rear. Metal is it the 44 rubber you have the 35
