Those appear to be ball joints? I feel stupid asking, I do actually know a little about mechanical work but I could be mistaken.

I'd be willing to bet in most DW cases, the ball joints are somehow part of the equation. Most people just never figure it out. They fix a couple other things in the stack of issues and call it good. It took two year od DW before my ball joints showed enough wear that you could raise the axle and watch the knuckle drop about 3/8".

I know this is reviving a kinda old thread but im having kinda the same issue. I own a 2001 xj put a HP dana 30 in with new everything! Timken bearings Chromolly ball joints new upper and lower arm bushings. I have ZJ steering I pulled form the junkyard and everything looks nice and tight, just got it aligned not too long ago, but its when I gas it getting onto the freeway or showing off passing the pathetic Toyota prerunners is when the embarrassment starts and I have to slow down. I have noticed that when my tire pressure is lower around say 40 psi it wobbles, when I put it up to around 60 psi its way better ( I have the Nitto Grapplers rated for 80 psi) Do you think its just my tires or something else? any input would be great thanks!
