Check your lower and upper control arms.
This tells me it's not DW. You'd know if it was DW due to the piss stain in your seat when your done with the ride.wranglermatt4527 said:Today coming back from takin my daughter to school I got a slight shimmy
No. You did not "fix" anything. You only masked the problem with the steering stabilizer. A new steering stabilizer fixes nothing. There is still something wrong with your Jeep that caused the wobble in the first place. It is most likely your track bar, but could be your tie rod ends, ball joints, and/or bad balance/alignment. These problems need to be corrected in order to actually cure death wobble. As I said, a steering stabilizer only masks the problem. Just wait, in a month or two your death wobble will return. A Jeep with a good front end (no worn parts) will drive just fine even WITHOUT a steering stabilizer. Do a dry steer test so you can determine the actual problems. And before you decide to argue with me and say I'm wrong, please search through the forms and read the sticky titled "Death Wobble?" at the top of the TJ forum. Not trying to be rude, just trying to help. :thumb:I had this issue 2 weeks ago also. Bought a beefy steering stabilizer and it got rid of my problem. The crappy stock one was so bad my 8 year old daughter could depress the piston in and out!!
ExactlyThe steering stabilizer is one of the last parts I would look to for the simple fact its not a part that i have to have. I want to fix the DW not just mask it. It seems to be I am following the correct steps. Track bar, TRE's, ball joints, and balance/alignment. I'm looking into new tires and wheels as we speak so that may not be an issue for long.
Once again I crawled underneath the little blue beast and started pushing and pulling on everything I knew could cause DW.
When you installed your new TB, did you check out the dia of the holes in the fixed frame bracket? If you don't remember, have someone sit behind the wheel with the ignition key "on" to free up the steering motion ... and aggressively turn the wheel back and forth while you closely watch the TB/frame connection. New TB with new bolts in a wallowed out hole still allows for minor movement.
Just another two cents. Good luck.
