It could but probably in combination with other issues, like yours was. Does it pull right or left going down a straight flat road? How are her tires? How many miles? You should be an expert on this now right?

Steering stabilizers are never the cause of, or solution to, death wobble. I do not use one. Many don't and never have death wobble.

i know they may not cause the death wobble, but when i couldnt drive my jeep over 40 mph on a perfectly smooth road because of death wobble and i bolt on a $30 skyjacker steering stabilizer and it fixes it completely, that looks like a solution to me. 15000 miles on it with that.

At most it's a cover, masking the real issue that is constantly getting worse.

Rats post is correct, a stabilizer does not fix the problem(s) related to DW.
