Sorry about your vacay, man. That's a bummer.


Why do you have two steering stabilizers?

So in one day you smashed up someone's car from the glare on the windshield, went wheeling and then left for vacation with a break down. Karma is a *****!

X2 on the Tierod being bent, and That would be a good candidate for causing Death Wobble .

When I moved to Texas from Md in 2008 My YJ was on a tow truck from the Natural Bridge in Va to Knoxville Tennessee. The Ball flange on my Manifold broke off and the heat from the exhaust melted the plastic line for my slave cylinder on Labor day weekend so everything was closed. Luckily I have family friends who lived in Tennessee that drive me to Bristol Va to get the new slave cylinder for my Jeep and they had a Friend who owned an exhaust shop.

Using dual stabilizers to hide death wobble instead of fixing the problem? I thought it was a typo, but you must really drive high alot.

If you Keep killing U joints it is cause your Hub/wheel bearings are probably shot and need to be replaced. Worn hubs will cause death wobble.

While your Jeep is in the shop you may want to have them shake down the front end

Items to check for,
Track Bar Bracket
Track Bar
Tierod
Tierod ends
Hubs
Control Arms
Control Arm Bushings
Swaybar links
Tire balance
Tire Inflation
Shocks
Shock Bushings

Do you have a Dropped Pitman arm ?
Do toy have an ADJ. Trac bar?

Make sure everything is torqued to proper specs

If I am understanding the order right he t-boned a van from the glare, repaired that damage with parts he had laying around, went out and had some fun with the Jeep (got it muddy for those who have not visited the other thread), washed it, went offroad again and this happened. He gets around, takes me a few days to be this productive.
