Death wobble experience
So had to share this, wasn't in a zj but a f250 work truck. Was sent on a road trip to pick up two pallets of sod. Got up to about 45mph tapped the brakes and then thought I was going to hit the ditch. At that point I turned around. Wasn't going to attempt to haul with it doing that. Kinda laughed when it was over cause I thought about the folks, first time, on here who get dw. It was shaking so much stuff was falling out of the seat.

Turned out it needed tie Tod ends and ball joints.

First time I ever experienced it (before I started calling it DW) was a '67 Buick Wildcat. Great car. 40k miles when bought at 2 years old. About 10k miles later, a whole lotta shakin' going on!
Took it to a shop where the guy instantly narrowed it down to the right front tire with a bad internal belt or other internal failure.
Swapped it for a new one and away we went.

Another time was on an Early Bronco in '77, but no need to go into detail there I guess. Because it's a Ford! ;) :rolleyes:
I love that smiley dnuccio. Gotta get me some of them.
