I guess i stated that wrong about dw. it nearly threw me out of the jeep.There's no such thing as a "slight" death wobble.
DW is an immediate, tremendous, violent problem that requires you to come to nearly a full stop to get it to quit.
You have another problem--tires out of balance perhaps. Review that thread carefully. :thumb:
You should look into the Synergy kit that replaces all the Tb and lower CA boys with stronger shouldered 9/16 bolts.unodog4 said:I do have some play in the trac bar bolts. do I need to replace the bolts with larger ones to offset the difference in hole size?
"Control arm." The synergy kit referenced by kjeeper replaces the stock track bar bolts as well as stock lower control arm bolts with better quality, shouldered bolts. (Pretty irresponsible by jeep to use fully threaded bolts in this application IMO.)unodog4 said:the tb stands for track bar what does the ca stand for?
Review this thread: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/the-importance-of-changing-out-stock-bolts-128154.htmlunodog4 said:Were would you suggest buying the parts to correct this problem?
As I understand death wobble, this is almost certainly your problem. You found the cause. That puts you way ahead of most folks who encounter this issue.unodog4 said:After taking the track bar completely out this afternoon I was able to determine that the bushings were worn and the bolt holes were badly worn larger.
Don't have an answer for this one. Looks like kjeeper was thinking washers or brackets.unodog4 said:Would welding the correct size washer be the easiest, and having some heavy duty bushing repressed into the track bar work?
Good question.unodog4 said:Thanks for the help. would those heavy duty brackets you are talking about have to be welded on, or are they a bolt on assembly? Also is there a specific band that would work better than the other? Just trying to make this thing as safe as possible, my wife drives it as well.
Is this the kit you are referring to?:You should look into the Synergy kit that replaces all the Tb and lower CA boys with stronger shouldered 9/16 bolts.
If the holes in the mounts are ovaled/worn out, washers welded on to close the holes or you can buy HD brackets from any of the lift manufactures.
There is a sticky if you haven't seen it.
