Well guys, I'm fresh out of ideas. I got the new wheels mounted today and put 8-9ish ounces of air soft beads in there for balancing. The wobble is still there from 45 on up and is especially bad between 50 and 60, then slows down a little after 60 but is still there. I had my alignment checked at Firestone on their digital rack and everything is in spec. I'm totally out of ideas. Again, everything is straight, tight, good to go. Nothing is worn, especially enough to cause my symptons. Add more beads? If anyone has any smart ideas, please tell me. This is getting to be very expensive and time consuming and I can't keep doing it.

New tie rod and track bar, drag link is good, new ball joints, control arms, and axle UCA bushings.

Well I guess the BBs finally took, and has greatly reduced the "shimmy" in the steering, He drove it to school and it was doing it, after school he headed over to gribbles place to they his 35's to see if that changed anything. By the time he had gotten there, it had stopped.

oh. thats interesting. glad it worked out then. my next suggestion was to just get a new jeep

i know my tires arent perfectly balanced and i get a slight shimmy at about ~45 then its gone. gonna take it back to the shop and toss some more weights on it so its gone. the 35" KM2 balanced out better than my 33" A/Ts

There is no "finally took" with BB's. Either they work or they don't. Either you are going fast enough for centrifugal force to push them into the low spots or you aren't. There is nothing more complicated to them than that. It's physics.

Either way, I'm glad the shimmy is gone.

Yeah its just BB's spinning around, its not like they seat themselves in the tires or anything so it must have been something different. But hey, as long as its not doing it anymore, then there is no problem! Hopefully everything just needed to settle in a little bit, I mean Connor, you did replace or even redesign just about every piece of suspension in the Jeep, it might need a little time to break in .
