This is a follow up to my death wobble "woes"...
DW would occur at 37+mph randomly, and most definitely with bumps in the road (on/off ramps, expansion joints, etc.) . When I put on my 35's DW drastically increased. Here's a list of my upgrades and outcomes...
1. Alignment and balance. DW still occurred.
2. Brought back for a check to ensure a proper alignment and balance. DW still occurred.
3. Currie HD steering. DW still occurred.
4. Track bar bolts tightened to spec + 20ft-lbs and new bolts (upper/lower), heim joint and bushing (RE-1600 track bar). DW still occurred.
5. Tires rebalanced. DW still occurred.
6. Replaced upper/lower control arm bushings all around (RE 4.5 SF SA) with Daystar polyeurethane. Serviced and tighted the superflex joints. DW still occurred.
7. Dry steer test...bad upper Currie drag link TRE...only 6 months old. Replaced upper Currie drag link TRE due to excessive movement/failure either to over greasing and/or DW encounters (most likely DW encounters). DW still occurred.
8. Stopped at the local brew store and got some IPA ingredients with high alpha acids for my next all grain batch...DW still occurred.
8. Brewed an awesome IPA (**lightbulb** zzz...zzz) and during my wort boil I checked my lower track bar bolt. Lower bolt had a solid 1/16" play in it. Note this was not noticeable during the multiple dry steer tests, nor were there signs of movement. DW still occurred, but at least I had a great beer fermenting.
9. Transferred the fruits of my labor to secondary, dry hopped it, and ordered Currie CE-9210 TJJ trackbar. Currie trackbar arrived, drilled out the lower end to 1/2", installed the new beef and...........boom..........DW gone.
Fingers crossed as it's only been a week and 400 miles, but no issues so far. Hope this helps someone out there and learns the headache I've finally cured (and not from the tasty beverage).
If DW comes back I'm going to brew another IPA, set toe out, check the upper control arms...and go from there.
