Reasons for the Deathwobble...

Had one yesterday while being the DD. It woulda been bad to get in a crash with a drunk in the back who I think was about to puke. I notice that it's only happened after a real nice mudding session.

hey man you could just have some mud and debris stuck in the inside ring of your wheels, any misbalance of your wheels from mud ,dirt and debris collected while off roading may unbalance your wheels and give you a very similar feeling to death wobble at speed.

hope you find out your cause ! good luck

It did the DW at 45mph. It was scary! I about s**t myself and don't care to do that while I'm in my jeep.

i'd check for mud unbalancing your tires, i went through the same thing today, after scraping off a few large clumps on the inside of my wheel with a wooden dolly' , no more wobble.

i was sure i broke something last night wheeling : (

I wonder how much they were charging to do the coil conversion in the front of the XJ's
