I installed the Northridge "anti-death wobble" bolt kit on my rig at about 1000 miles. I got about 7000 miles on it now, and only 2 wheeling adventures, of which one was more hard core and the other easier. If you have followed the debate, there are questions about whether replacing the bolts is necessary or not, but the bottom line is that stock bolts or aftermarket bolts won't do their job if they are loose.

So I grabbed a buddy and re-torqued the UCA bolts (not replaced by the kit), LCA bolts, and track bar bolts. (I have previously re-checked the sway bar bolts). 2 LCA bolts and 1 track bar bolt were not tight enough (nothing was wobbly loose, but these three definitely required a bit of rotation to reach required torque).

So I'm repeating good advice that has already been said many times--check your suspension bolt torque as part of routine maintenance.
