Unfortunately it's still the LP. But I'll put you at the top of the list if still interested.

I'll definitely keep that in mind. The rear end is taken care of. Just looking for some geared HP30'S now.

Ball joints done. Driver side bottom was shot. Wobble still there. **** me!!! I feel like a damn retard that I can't figure this out.

Going to try swapping tires around again after my daughter's gymnastics show. Maybe it is a tire wobble.

I replaced balljoints, TRE's, trackbar bushing, and tires road force balanced. Still have vibes and wobbles. I feel your pain

How bad is the wobble? Is it possible that it's just a "normal" amount for your set-up?

It's not too bad now, but annoyingly more than I want.

Got the shroud lowered & the engine skid on & tire rotated. Going to take her for a spin to get some longer bolts for my bandaid rear shock fix.

Depends on what you consider to be "normal" or "acceptable." To me, any wobble, shimmy, shake, vibration, ect. is not "normal".

I bet it's tire/wheel related Danno. You have been through just about everything else.

I retract my previous statement that its livable. It's just so temperamental. Drove it 15 miles to get bolts. Wobbled pretty good between 50-60 on the way there. On the way back there was hardly a wobble the first half, then suddenly wobbled like it did on the way there. I'm sort of wondering if its a syncing thing between wheels. Like when the balance gets clocked just right to each other they start wobbling. I know none of then are balanced perfect, close, but not perfect.

It was worse after rotating the tires, so I guess I'll switch them back. The thing that throws me is that NOTHING has changed with steering or suspension. All this started after I did the body lift, flat belly & installed the chromo front axles I got from John (boilerup). Which have very few miles on them.

I had my DW pop back up after doing a BL and MML as well. It ended up being my tackbar frame side mount. I dont know how they ran into each other but it happened no the less.

What exactly was the issue with the mount? I'm running the currie HD track bar with the big *** bolt that had to have the mount drilled out. It's "blow out your butthole" tight.

How are the joints on your control arms? I went though the full gambit with death wobble and my lower control arm bushings were worn, replaced them smooth as can be.
