I don't have wheel spacers on the Rubicon. The spring spacers are aluminum

The 2005 Rubicon Unlimited its the TJ (technically the LJ) and not the JK

Okay, so we order some aluminum spacers (mind you with 15K on the jeep). Put em on... successes. didn't get an alignment. Month later... DEATH WOBBLE INSANITY. Blew the shocks and the SS. Got new aftermarket shocks and a bigger aftermarket SS. (which I know now is a band-aid fix) Alignment. That kinda helped. DW was still there. Got a JKS ADJ TB and got new Goodyear Kevlar MT/R tires. Alignment by and Off-road shop. That pretty much fixed the insane DW. We still have terrible bump steer and major 45-65 mph vibes like crazy... Basically a 100 dollar boost turned into 2200 dollar nightmare... with services, alignments, tires, parts, shocks, PIA'ness.

Ideas to fix vibes and bump steer please help me out.
no alignment....that's the reason....then all of the TRE's got worn, and you replaced all of the other stuff but the main ones...noob mistake!

and what do they do when they do an alignment??? adjust the tireods...which are helod on by the TRE's...if the ends are worn FROM the DW then alignment will only be good for so long. replace them and you're golden pony boy...then maybe you will get hte lift you so desire. oh, and get moogs...go to advanced, they carry them there...sign up for their mailing list, get a 20% off in the mail...go to a couple other stores, get their best price for them, and THEN go to advanced, with the best price from other place and coupon.

There is 40K on it now. DW started around 30K. Everything that was 'replaced' one at a time (from start to finish, 1000 miles give or take) Everything has been on it for about 8-9K miles.
