front end wobble

Not all the time but if I'm goin say 60 mph and hit a bump in the road it has this crazy *** wobble goin out of control like. I think it's my shocks or steering stabilizer, probably been on there since 96'. 1996 grand cherokee,4.0 4x4 selec trac, stock as a rock. Thanks if anybody can help me.

Search for death wobble on the forum. You will find a lot of info to figure out what is causing it.

Death wobble has so many causes it would take less time for you to search and read three threads than to type everything out for you.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

So that crazy death wobble can occur on a stock ride. I thought it only happened when you lifted it like 4" or so. Thanks I'll check out some other posts and try to figure this thing out.

Yes, it can occur on a stock ZJ. Mine was cured with a new track bar and steering damper.
