Worn sway bar link causing shimmy?
I recently replaced my sway bar links with some JKS quicker disconnects. One of the old links I replaced had a bad ball joint that had a lot of play in it when I would shake the jeep back and forth. Anyway, after replacing them with the JKS discos it fixed my shimmy at 50mph. I was surprised that a sway bar link would do this as I hear of people running without sway bars all the time. What I want to know is if I am covering up the true cause for the shimmy, as I still have some driveline hum that sounds like a bearing or u-joint (all seem tight tho). Any thoughts?
I would not think that was the problem. I have run without the swaybar hooked up plenty of times wth no shaking. Your new disco's are adjustable and the different length might have made a difference.
