Death wobble

Hello everyone ive been battling death wobble for a while and i feel like ive tried everything. Ive replaced ball joints, wheel bearings, steering stabalizer, replaced all tie rod ends, rotors turned, wheels rotated and balanced, everything. Well i guess the only thing left is tires and a tie rod, Well my tires arent to bad so im gonna get a new tie rod. Any suggestions on which one to get? i have 4 inches of lift and 33-12.50 tires on a 99 jeep wrangler. Any suggestions would be helpfull, thanks

i had the same thing, it ended up being the tires needed to be balanced... and i took it to a shop... the "balanced them" and it worked ok.... i got to go like 20 mph faster than i could before... so i took it to a diff shop "les schwab" and watched them balance them... its amazing what good equiptment can do.... i'd suggest goin to a shop with a laser balancer... there way more precise... and btw... bad allignment cant give you a wobble... ever....

A bad aligment can to give you a horrable wobble try doing a alighment when its on jack stands and then going 45 mph. Got some bad info. took it home and re did it on some level pavement and it hasent wobbled sence.

Try this I think it might help.http://www.4x4xplor.com/alignment.html

Well alright was just commenting on my experience. Having the Jeep almost roll was no way compared to doing 45 mph and getting tossed around like a mexian jumping bean. I redid the alighment and it fixed it.

Hey If your ASE look at my post about this issue im having with my IAC

Sorry not to hijack thread
