also if it happens again check all the bushings in the control arms. bigger beefier control arms will help. always make sure u drive with your front swaybar hooked up it will lead to it, and make it happen a lot worse if you leave the sawybar unhooked. a better stabilizer would make a difference although if everthing is tight that one should do. and i would just replace the tracbar with an adjustable aftermarket one. i really like rough country they make a good product and have the best customer service out there. they will repalce anything no questions asked
well back to death wobble. it didnt do it when i test drove it the night after i rotated tires, but then it ended up doing it again the next day. i would love to go ahead and buy a trac bar and control arms but im a senior in highschool and dont get tht many hours and i have insurance and gas to pay for so i am low on budget, and im trying to narrow down the small things that i can do before i spend a bunch of money on them and they dont help. i had my uncle look at it (hes pretty good with auto work). he noticed some slop on the thing comming from steering box, so he tightend bolt on top a little hoping it would work, but it didnt change, we then noticed that the shaft going into the steering box has about a quater inch of play, i am wondering if that is normal or this is could be causing it, cause a new steering box is pricey. thanks, Cole
I feel you on that one i am also a senior in hs and am only working part time but luckly have an awesome jon in the summers making about 600 dollars a week and helps the jeep keep rolling everday lol. My jeep just started to go back into death wobble mode about 2 weeks ago and has me stumped
I have put lower control arms new hub drop pitman arm steering stablizer tracbar. I think i need a new ujoint and thats my current problem. Do you know how far u live from lafayette i just seen u r from indiana
im from Newburgh, IN. 1997 Wrangler TJ and i put a 2.5in Rough Country coil spring lift with Rought Counrty 2.2 shocks on, and i also got a replacement stablilizer. at first it did do anything different, but now at random times when im going around 55 i get death wobble. it did not have death wobble before i installed the lift. i took it to Car X in evnasville to get alignment. i was wondering if that was a good place to go, and if not then what is a good place to go to find out what my problem is?
Do you understand what Death Wobble is... or is this a balance issue?Please elaborate on the feeling you are getting while driving?
Drivelines Plus on Morgan Ave may be able to help you, if not they would be able to tell you who can. They deal with lifted vehicles on a daily basis. I work at Hamlin rental which is just off of morgan. I could prolly take a look at it one afternoon if you would want me too. I am not making any promises, but I have worked on several lifted trucks and my own jeep. Not to mention I turn wrenches for a living. If you are interested just shoot me a pm. I will try to check on here tomorrow during the day sometime.
