This is a follow-up to a previous thread. I recently experienced "death wobble." Tried fixing it with a new steering damper...no dice. Brought it to Jeep dealer today, and they said an hour-long inspection didn't turn up any clear problems. Their advice is to replace my tires, which do seem to be on their last legs (36,500 city miles). They think that will do the trick, but they're not certain.
My question to you, Jeep Forum sages, is this. Should I:
a) Seek another opinion and see if someone else can fix the Death Wobble? (but where if a Jeep dealer can't?)
b) Replace the tires and hope that, $800 later, that solves the problem?
c) Give up on this Jeep and get another car rather than sink God knows how much money into trying to figure out how to fix this? Seriously...I may abandon Jeeps altogether, although that would kill me.
Seriously, though...what would you do? It's so frustrating not knowing exactly how to fix this. Advice would be seriously appreciated.
I would put my own hands on it and look at it before just randomly buying stuff.. Have someone steer it back and forth and hold the tie rod, drag link, and track bar also look for slop. Bjs are easy to check also.
