The entire bar is one entire piece. You can't unscrew the TRE. How stupid is that.

However, the TRE feels pretty tight. There is no in and out movement and the rolling movement it's designed to do feels tight as well. it doesn't wiggle at all if you take your finger and thumb and apply back and forth pressure.

I love PBJ on Hawaiian rolls too.
But if you are a REAL PBJ connoisseur, you will make your PBJ sammiches on French toast.
I have made them in one of those pie cookers over a campfire too. I would think a waffle iron would work also.

PBJ with French toast is good. Something about melty PB. Much better than not melted.


Guys, are TRE's suppose to move at all by hand? I can move the one on the track bar by hand and its not too difficult.

We diagnose issues as a system visually and systematically since its not an easy thing to do over the internet.

EG: You mentioned "by hand". Your by hand will most likely be different than others, so the results will vary.

Yeah I understand. Is there a general rule of thumb when it comes to testing these outside of the vehicle?

are you talking about melted pbnj sandwiches or TRE's? If it's TRE's youtube can be your friend if you watch a view video's. This is the 1st one I came across. Pardon the fact that he's a dork, he's Canadian, and it's a Honda but a TRE is a TRE...

Aside from a busted grease boot, the one on my track bar was easily moved. I replaced it with an adjustable one from RE. That helped fixed my problems I was having. New TREs should be able to be moved by your hand, but not very easily. I could tell the difference in the old vs new TREs I put on my Jeep the other day.

I saw the Canadians video. Good for normal TRE's but I found it hard to replicate that with an angled track bar.

The joint is stiff to move but probably far to easy from what I have heard around here. Ill order the new track bar. Thanks everyone.

Edit: Does anyone else's JF app give them a "phase error" when they try to open this thread? Really starting to bug me.

Just out of interest, when you were saying it moves...would you say it moves in relation to A or B? Or both? A is OK so long as its firm and not just flopping around like a wet noodle. B is def NOT ok lol

I never use the app on my phone. its a real POS. i just use the website. works fine for me.

Things to check for Death Wobble:
track bar upper and lower
control arm bushings
caster angle
ball joints
tire balance
Drag link rod ends
tie rod, rod ends
sloppy steering box
stabilizer and brackets


While a stabilizer might mask the problem, it won't fix it. if suspension and steering are properly setup, you won't need one

When in the vehicle with it running and the steering wheel turning back and forth the TRE moved in the B plane, up towards the engine and down towards the ground. It doesn't move like that outside of the vehicle though.
