anyone from tacoma in here

hey.. new to the forum.. i have a 93 wrangler and its falling apart lol.. i want to try and learn how to fix some of the stuff on my own.. tired of getting stuck by mechanics. any gurus want to have a beer sometime and take a look at it with me n point out some of the obvious? main things are i have the death wobble.. pretty sure its the track bar bolt issue and possibly bushings on the tie rod.. anyways hit me up

I'm in Tacoma and don't mind standing around, drinking beer.

It's a YJ, so the track bar probably isn't your issue. You can ditch those and not even notice thanks to the direct mounting of the leaf springs to the axle. Probably just worn out u-joints or tie rod/drag link.
