Doing a Search in the future for subjects like this will generally produce the answers you're looking for. The below is the result of one search for Death Wobble answers that took no more than a few seconds.

And a big welcome to JF!

Yes, a search first is always a good idea.
With that said, my issue with death wobble wasn't in any of my searches when I had the problem awhile ago.

Dealership was kind enough to put a new track bar and heavy duty stabilizer on according to some TSB they had...didn't resolve the issue.
They used the old track bar bushing!
It was squishy and worn and fell out of the end of the track bar when I replaced it.
Around $20 for a new poly one and wobble gone!

Search results always expire as the one I included above did.

The point I was making was that it only takes 10 seconds to perform a Search using "Death Wobble" as the search argument. If he goes to the Advanced Search option, he also can insert my name in the User Name field while including Death Wobble in the Search field, I've written a lot about DW.
