Today on the way to school I got a wobble in the front,not the death kind though. Pulled it in the shop. Going to tighten everything up in the front end.

Just had mine towed to the shop. It started up, raced a few times and then died. Too cold out to mess with it and it was blocking the garage with the other cars in it. I hate sending it to the shop, but the one I use is a good one.

Got a little bit more out of the track bar bolt with the impact. I hope that's why I was getting the wobble, nothing else was loose or had play in it. So we will see on the way home tonight.

Oh and I also found out when when I was laying under it looking at some rock rash on the oil pan that my down pipe is loose as all get out where it meets the manifold. Idk if I want to try and tighten it up any because it looks rusted pretty bad, and that's always heating up and cooling.

Still has a wobble. I'm lost. Everything on the front is new and tight. It only started to getting bad after I rotated my tires. And it still kinda pulls to the left. Possibly alignment?

This is the first time I have considered it. But after i get this wobble fixed I might try and either sell the jeep as is it part it out. I can't afford to keep putting money in it. I can't hardly save to buy a cheap dd. maybe if I can sell off some parts of it I can fund a dd and keep it for a wheeler.

Have you had the tires balanced?

Have u done any wheelin since then? I only ask since it started after u rotated ur tires. Maybe u knocked a wheel weight off one of the rears and didn't notice it until u rotated it to the front.
