Ok, so I've been having intermittent bouts with death wobble here lately. It's been tolerable and I can still drive the Jeep; but, I'm just getting tired of it now. And frankly, it's kind of embarrassing. It always seems to happen on those bumps coming on and getting off bridges.
I'm going to have someone steer the Jeep while I look under it tomorrow to see if anything looks fishy. I have a slight wobble at 45 mph. It used to get worse as I hit the brakes. I then replaced the rotors and rotated the tires and it no longer sends me into death wobble but still has the shimmy at 45 mph. I'm almost expecting my frame side track bar mount to be ovaled out. I'm running the stock track bar and it's tight as hell cause I've already tried tightening it more. Tie rods have never been replaced (to my knowledge), so that may be a contributing factor. I'll probably go ahead and take a look at all the control arm bushings as well since I'll underneath the Jeep anyways. May see if my tires need to be balanced as well.
Anyone running the JKS track bar with only a spacer lift?
BTW, getting the bumpers tomorrow. So, pictures will be coming soon.
