Steering Wheel Wobble. Not Death Wobble.


I've got an 05 Sport with a 2' BB and Rubicon Wheels and Tires. This weekend I was playing around in a wooded area on the back of my dad's property. When I pulled out of the garage this morning and all of the way to work I noticed a slight shimmy that is really only noticeable at slow speeds. It's almost like the steering wheel gives a bit. My tires/wheels are not wobbling. It's not a speed or bump related thing, like with death wobble. My steering just kind of jumps back and forth a bit when i turn at slow speeds. I, of course, inspected the underside after being in the woods, everything appears to be good. I'm just not well versed enough to know what could be the problem.

Any ideas? I searched the forums and was overwhelmed with death wobble threads. What should I try and tighten?

Thanks in advance.


I own a Jeep. I like it a lot.
