Front end vibe for a few seconds, not DW

So i can drive my jeep at 70-75 and its smooth as heck. However sometimes i get a vibe like im goin over a rumble strip (which im not) for a few seconds then it disappears and i dont get it for a long time. I dont know if it is an early warning of something failing, like wheel bearing or cv shaft, or if its just spots in the road. It seems to be coming from the front right passenger. Im trying to figure it out but really dont know where to look. I know it isnt the tires out of balance. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Thanks guys.

How long since you replaced the steering stabilizer?

Probably the original. I bought the jeep this past december and have but about 12,000 mi on it. Only things ive done, oil and regular stuff like that, water pump, front shocks, tires, many car washes, and soon transfer case swap, diff fluid change, and tranny filter/fluid change. Any way to tell if there shot?

You could take off the original steering stabilizer and see how easy it is to move in and out. I would start with that. They are cheap to replace as well, somewhere in the range of $40.

If the penatrating oil doesn't work, try heating the bolts up.
