Well it seems like I might not be done before the 20th.
I took the jeep out for a drive yesterday to test out my scraping sound solution which worked only to end up finding out I have DW now. I cant figure out how that happened since I didnt do anything to my front end.

Time to run through everything in hopes to fixing it before the 20th

Death wobble is not fun to chase down . Did you check the usual culprits , ie; trac bar and tres ? Mine was a bad balance and the trac bar .

Ya I'm going to check everything out tonight after work. I'm thinking my track bar might be the culprit.

Got the DW fixed the track bar bolt on the axle end opened the hole up. I simply drilled a slightly bigger hole and out in a beefy bolt.

It will seem my DW is still alive and well. Its back to the cutting board. I'm going to get a 4 wheel alignment and see if my rear is matching up as well as it should be.

Got the DW down to a slight shimmy at 45mph which I can deal with so I'm calling it good for a bit. After work I'm going to adjust the rear and move it forward a hair, its kind of touching my gas skid at full bump.
