still have a little bump steer
ok so after lifting my jeep I was on the highway going about 65 and got death wobble really bad. so i ordered a rough country dual steering stabilizer, well that took care of the death wobble but it still has bump steer, steering wheel shakes a little when i hit a bump. so i ordered a drop pitman arm from rugged ridge, went to install it and realized it wont work with the dual steering stabilizer, do you guys have any other suggestions what i can do to get rid of this annoying bump steer?

Also control arm bushings. The axle is located by the track bar and the control arms. Get all the bushings and rod ends in good condition and you will probably be fine. The dual-SS system is really only a good idea if you have LARGE tires as the stock single camper can't damp that much energy on its own. Otherwise you are just trying to cover up symptoms and not actually fixing them.

Oh also.... did your lift come with a drop track bar bracket? You don't want that. You want your drag link and your track bar to be parallel to avoid bump steer. Otherwise your axle has two different pivot points as as it moves up, the steering twists. Run it with stock track bar bracket and an adjustable track bar.
I have an adjustable trac bar and the tie rods are all seem to be tight . Control arm bushing are in good shape not torn , I have adjustable arms on the lower, I was thinking it was the drag link angle is to much, is there anything else I can do to fix the angle because the drop pitman arm won't fit because it hits the drivers side stabilizer shock
Ill put money on your track bar not being torqued tight enough. Get a friend to turn the steering wheel back and forth as you are under it watching every part of the steering. Then fix whats loose.
