    The vehicle: 2017 JKU, 39,500 miles, factory BFG K02 265/70/17's. Suspension mods are limited to a set of TeraFlex 1" front spring spacers, a full set of Rancho 5000 shocks, and Rancho steering stabilizer. I recently changed the steering stabilizer on our JKU to a Rancho unit. Stock...

    Hey all, My wife’s Jeep had death wobble recently and I couldn’t diagnose it myself so I took it to a shop. The vehicle had been in an accident before we bought it but I hadn’t seen any other damage other than the front right fender which was replaced, the shop told me I need a new front axle...

    So I put a 3 inch lift kit on my brand new wrangler JLU. It is now practically undriveable on highways due to the fact anytime I hit 55mph or over and hit a bump, the vehicle violently shakes to the point in have to slow down to 30-40 mph to get it to subside. Have been doing a lot of research...

    I’ve recently been having severe death wobble when hitting bumps on the highway. Recently replaced my upper control arms and track bar. Also Took my jk to the mechanic and they said I need to replace my inner tie rod end and drop pitman arm. To me personally, the drop pitman arm looks fine...

    I recently installed Steer Smarts front track bar bracket, Yeti XD track bar, XD top mount drag link, and XD Tie Rod. Noticed the install instructions specifically recommend 1/4" toe OUT (0.5 degrees) to prevent "death wobble". Everything I've seen for JKs recommends toe IN of varying degrees...

    So I am new to the Jeep'n world. I bought a 2004 Wrangler Sahara off of a friend of the family. The body's in great shape the frames in great shape and only a hundred thousand miles. I was told the whole front end has been gone through and everything checks out. After driving it for about a half...

    Would I be better off with a stock pitman arm with my setup? It’s currently a dropped arm. I’ve been getting death wobble, so I was wondering if running a stock pitman arm and lowering my track bar on the passenger side would possibly fix some of the issues.

    Hi all, Currently my Jeep is stock as for suspension, I have a 2017 Willys JKU. I have been noticing a lot of shaking in the steering, like the dreaded death wobble, so I decided to check for anything visibly wrong under the Jeep and it looks like this tie rod end might be bent out of shape...

    Has anyone had issues with death wobble before adding a lifting or leveling their Jeep? I want to add some more height to mine but I'm not sure if that would make the existing death wobble issue worse. If I were to level or lift my '07 Wrangler, would the existing death wobble be worse or is it...

    So the dreaded wobble has finally come to my first Jeep. Because this is my first wobble (hopefully last) I’m not entirely sure what should be wiggling and what shouldn’t be. My tie rod rotated slightly, but I think that’s normal? My track bar moves a little bit if I pull and twist it, also not...

    So, I know there are tons of forums here about death wobble but none of them actually answered my question. Everything on my Jeep was running well. No issues. Took it in for the PA inspection and the shop noticed my ball joints were gone and needed to be replaced. A few weeks later I started...

    Hi friends! I'm new here... I signed up to see if my fellow Jeep folks can help me out with advice- this is a bit lengthy but I wanted to give all the info! I've got a 2003 TJ. 4x4, straight six, beautiful looker. Drove it for about 5 years with the tires that were on when I bought it-...

    Can't believe a newish (18,000) 2018 Jeep JL already got the death wobble. Brought it to the dealer (they've always been good) who gave me the steering stabilizer recall. (See photo link for details.) I know people say the stabilizer only masks the issue, but someone give me hope that this may...

    OK. I have some death wobble action going on. I've read some very good threads and tutorials on this forum and understands it starts (not necessarily ends) with the track bar. I figure tackling this is how I become familiar with Helga's front end. So I started with the track bar. I bought a...

    Hello everyone, I have a 2013 JK that I recently installed the Teraflex HD tie rod and drag link kit on. I also installed Energy Suspension track bar bushings on the stock trackbar. Other than these upgrades the Jeep is stock. They were starting to wear and I plan on a lift/wheels soon so I...

    Hey all, I was hoping some of you who have experienced death wobble or other issues could give me some tips. I have a 2007 Rubicon, mostly stock except the wheels/tires. I was experiencing death wobble and brought my jeep to a 4x4 shop. For $1,300 :blackeye: they replaced the upper and lower...

    Hi, new here, beginner with lifting things. So I'll start here... I owe too much money on my Jeep to use it offroad currently so I've built a bit of a mall crawler. With that in mind I didn't want to go super expensive with the lift and we had used the Rough Country 3.25" lift where I work...
