Steering

Well, my 95 zj-5.2 n I went out for a drive after doing the plenum repair on it along with a valve job. 35 miles sounded great ! Better than it's ever sounded for me . 3 miles from home , I went over a railroad crossing n glad I was going slow! The minute I did , it felt like the front-end came apart. It was like it was possessed,jerking right then left . Is this the "death wobble"?Don't want no part of it , need help !how do I get this solved? I thank you in advance....

That sounds like death wobble and it seems that more often than not it's your front track bar. Check it for slop by having someone turn the wheels back and forth while you watch the trackbar. If it does move around then you need to see if it's the bushings in the bar or the bolt hole that might have wallowed out.
