Definitely give that a shot. I've seen an off-balance front tire cause a steering shimmy (not death wobble though) on ZJs before.

Yep I'm going to. Just need to figure out how I'm going to get them to walFart and not leave my jeep there. Because well its Walmart.

I've been a tire tech since 1988. This is a valid point! One step farther, have them watch the wheels and tires carefully as they spin. An out of round tire(or worse, one with a broken belt) will cause DW every time.

I sure as hell hope that's not the problem. I can't afford new tires

I bought Hellas (in pic) they're black magic 500s. New in box. One lens has a internal chip on the rim but it's basically cosmetic. I got the pair for 57 bucks

Got around to replacing a bad axle u-joint, only it was rusted beyond repair. Not surprising after 190k in New Jersey. Ended up putting in a new CV shaft instead and all is well again.

Good to know that the front servo test port is a good spot for the 42/44 trannies, 44re in my case. I used the same port for a gauge on my 94 zj w/ the 46rh and my old 98 ram with the 46re. Got it hooked up to a gauge? where did you mount that? Cruzin town what temps ya runnin?

Giving me some motivation here knowin it'll work the same
