Ditto bump steer. But you can check your balljoints by jacking
up your jeep and grabbing the wheel give it a good tug front and
back if you hear a click or feel alot of movement could be.
You could also have someone else wobble while you look to see
where the motion is. Pitman arm, Balljoints , whathave you.
Good luck

Bump steer happens only when you hit a bump. Usually cased but a bad steering stabalizer. Death Wobble is when you lift you vehcile and it wobbles at a certain speed. Sometimes it happens some times it doesn't. DW is usually cased be a loose bolt in the steering or suspension componnents.
