    I have a quick question, so I need to replace the boots/ bushings at both ends of my drag link. I have found that they are both shot, and that I'm able to push the draglink back and forth. I believe this is the solution to my severe death wobble, So my question is, can i just by any boot for the...

    Hey everyone, So I used to get the death wobble from hitting train tracks, or a pot whole. That's just an average jeep thing, but now I get the death wobble randomly on even pavement! From driving from point A to point B I will avg. get the death wobble 3-6 times for no reason. I have replaced...

    Ok, So I know all about the death wobble, why and how it happens. I know how to fix it and all. So a friend of mine has an LJ with a 6 inch long arm kit. It was professionally installed by Truck Toyz in connecticut. I know they are big into modifying trucks but I have no clue how their expertise...

    Hi All, I just joined the forum today, but have been using it for months to learn more about my first Jeep. So I went and got my tires balanced and an alignment done at a local Jeep dealership about 6 months ago. When driving back home, i got BAD death wobble to the point where I had to pull...

    So my TJ has some death wobble and I'm 99.9% sure that the cause is the loose nut in the picture. I can easily wobble the whole assembly around with just my hand. I thought it would simply be a matter of tightening the nut, but upon doing so, I come to find that the threads on the nut and bolt...

    I don’t know if this will help anyone but if it does than great! My encounter and eventual fix with the death wobble. I purchased a stock 2007 JKU Sahara about a year ago with almost 180k (112 miles). My second car I’ve ever owned so I was pretty happy when I got a decent deal – just had to...

    So I went and got my 1999 TJ lifted. I had a rough country 3.25 inch installed by what i thought was a "professional". Turns out they're anything but. I also put on some 33x12.5 AT tires. Going into it I had no clue the extent the lift would affect my Jeep. The main issue I have is the vibration...

    Hi Forum Members, I'm riding in a 2007 JK 2 door and have the death wobble. I cant go beyond 55 mph and fill every bump on the road. Its not the most comfortable or stable ride and the steering wheel shifts around going over even the tiniest bumps. The car is full stock. So I had a friend...

    Trying to replace the bolt in my track bar because I'm getting the death wobble (again) and I ran into a problem. The bolt seems to have welded itself to the metal sleeve inside the bushing. I'm going to have to cut it out and most likely replace the bushing. Where can I get another...

    The wobble is bad. I am not much of a mechanic, but I know how to turn a wrench. I spoke with a mechanic and he said my dampener. When I spoke with someone at qtec, they told me all I would need was part# 16301.9001. They called it the Rubicon Express OE Replacement Steering Stabilizer. I know...

    Hello All- I am the new owner of a used 2006 Wrangler X. The jeep was hardly driven (only has 32,000 miles) and I am starting to wonder if it was not driven because it was not functioning right. The lady who owned it was old and moving overseas so she wanted to get rid of it...anyway here is my...

    I just had my local shop install my front upper JKS adjustable control arms. I'm afraid that they may have added too much Caster. I currently have a 2.5 lift and JKS Track bar. My rig definitely feels firmer in the steering however I noticed a shimmy as I went over some bumps in the road so I...

    Alright, Friday I picked up a 1997 jeep wrangler sport with 142,xxx. I always drove Chevrolet full size trucks but it got totaled. I had to get a vehicle, By doing so I sold my 450 bike to get one. What better way to keep your interest and summer fun of the woods by keeping it there trading 2...

    So a few months back I experienced a death wobble and needless to say, it wasnt fun. I had my 07 JKU looked at by the shop that did my lift (Pro Comp 2.5 with Bilstein 5100 shocks) and they ended up replacing the failed steering stabalizer that had busted. Since then I have not had anymore...

    So I have had my 2.5" rough country lift on since January and in about June my jeep death wobbled once but didn't think anything of it because it only happened once. Well lately it has been happening very violently and I took it to a shop, they drove it, and then saw my front drive shaft was...
