    my 93 wrangler shakes horribly between 20 and 40 mph. I feel it most in the steering wheel but also in the floor, seat, gas pedal. upon inspection of my driveshaft I found that my rear yolk was bad along with the u joint, replaced both thinking this was my vibration as it goes away when clutch...

    I've been getting a weird wobble whenever I turn right, and especially when I'm traveling 40-45. It's weird because it doesn't happen when i turn left and as soon as I cut the wheel back the wobble stops. I had replaced the passenger side ball joint a few weeks ago. When this started happening I...

    Heeeey! So I have a stock 2004 Wrangler, I've been the only owner and about 3 years ago it started doing the dance of DEATH on the highway, that death wobble between 45 and 55. It was clearly visible from the outside and was strong enough to shake some of the bolts loose on the hard top. Scary...

    Hey Forum, I just installed a 2.5" teraflex lift as well as new tires and wheels on my JK less than 600 miles ago, and am now experiencing a little bit of wobble whenever I go over a bump or hit a pothole at low speeds. This wobble has gotten significantly worse over time, but it really only...

    Hey guys, I experienced an episode of death wobble the other day and the problem has been identified as a bad steering gear box (leaking), and both ends of the draglink. There are no signs of wear on the track bar, tie rod or ball joints yet. I need a new draglink and would like to eventually...

    I experienced the death wobble first hand and it was not fun. The odd thing is that most information you find on the internet says it normally comes on at higher speeds. Mine happened as I was accelerating (not hard) from an intersection and I wasn't going much more than 30mph. Felt like the...

    Hey guys. So I just finished installing my lift this weekend, Zone's 1.25" BL + 3" SL + 1" MML Combo. Everything went relatively smoothly, and as far as I know I torqued everything down to either factory specs, or the specs that Zone's instructions gave me for their hardware. Prior to lifting...
