Steering stabilizer

Is it possible to overstretch your stock steering stabilizer? Im getting a huge death wobble after coming off a trail.

Old build 99 TJ 100wb on 35s and arbs.
New build D60s, 40s etc.
I void warranties.

Steering stab. is not the cause of death wobble. It is something else. I even get a death wobble feel a day on the trail if I have aired down. I get the tires rebalanced and im good to go. Be sure to check all of your front steering and suspension. Replacing your steering stab. might fix the prob. for now but it will be back until you find the true prob.

There are folks that run without a ss with no issues so it bound to be something else.

why would your steering stabilizer have anything to do with the death wobble you're experiencing?

I bought my 06 wrangler in april and the day i bought it i had a not bad but noticable shimmy at 53-55. Brought it back to the dealer and it took them a week to figure out what the problem was. They balanced the tires like 3 times and come to find out the steering stabalizer had about a half in of play in it causing the shimmy.
