I have owned jeeps for years but have never been really technical or knew how they worked. I need suggestions and help from those of you who know what you are talking about so please excuse the ignorance. I own a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport. In December I was on my way home from Charlotte late night and hit a bear with the front passenger bumper. The entire front end started shaking violently and I thought that I had busted tires or something. When I calmed down and decided there was no risk for bear attack I got out to check out the jeep and there looked to be no damage to the jeep. At least twice on the way home I had death wobble (but didn't know what it was at the time.) I turned the jeep in on insurance and they sent me to my local shop (who were apparently as clueless as I was) and the shop then stated there was nothing wrong with the jeep. They did an alignment and sent me on my way.
All was well for a few months then I started having death wobble again. I did some research online and noticed that the culprit if often loose track bar. I had my husband tighten the track bar (it was slightly loose). It worked for a while but then continued to have the problem. I took it to jeep dealer this time who told me I had two busted front shocks and they wanted $500 to replace the shocks. They again tightened the track bar. I decided since I had always wanted to have a small lift on my jeep I would instead have a different local guy install Rough country 3.25" suspension lift which included shocks. One week after installation still having the same problem. Any suggestions? I am a total novice but I'm slowly learning.
