Help!

I've searched and searched to no avail; could anyone out there help me diagnose the issues were having. I've re-torqued all components related to the infamous DW, and it still did not correct this problem. Wheels have been balanced repeatedly as well. It's an 07 Wrangler Unlimited Sahara with a leveling kit and 265/70r18 Cooper ATP's. any help appreciated!

The video failed to attach, my apologies, I'll try to attach it ASAP. FYI, the symptoms were having appear to be very similar to DW, however, it mostly occurs during braking from highway speed. Significant steering wheel vibration/play as well as what feels to be an out of balance wheel. Is a bad rotor the possible issue?

Not sure if the leveling kit just lifted the front or if it is one of the puck lift kits. If so, you may want to install an adjustable track bar in the front. I have 3" lift up front and 2 at the back. Had endless DW issues until I put in the adjustable track bar.

I was very fortunate and my issues were resolved with new pads/rotors! Thanks for the input.

Was going to tell you that is not DW. DW is not just a shaking of the steering wheel. It is a violent tear the wheel out of your hands, everything feels like its falling apart shake.
