  5. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I sure hope you understand what I'm about to say. So death wobble, maybe mostly be unparalleled track bar and steering bar and uneven lengths to boot. We will go with that one for now. I totally understand how when the jeep is compressed downwards the misaligned bars will cause the front...
  6. WJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    I need help! My 2004 WJ was at the end of it's life and I really liked that series. Therefore, rather than buying newer, I picked up a 2001 WJ that was very well maintained, with much lower miles and wear than mine. However, the pervious owner piecemealed a 2.5" lift on it that makes it...

    Jeep has had a bit of death wobble. Changed all four ball joints, and this is what the new ball joints look like. Drivers side has about 1/4" more gap between the knuckle and the inner C than does the passenger side. Is this a bent C, and if so, can I fix it? Note, I have over 200,000 miles...

    When replacing the front track bar bolts to the larger 9/16 do they have to be fine threaded? I have 2 9/16 3in bolts have thread (12) I think they should be fine as long as I use locking washers. Anyone have problems with them loosening prematurely?

  19. General Jeep & Off-Road Equipment
    I recently started experiencing the death wobble. I had my 2010 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 2 door(stock) looked at and I was told it was because my alignment was thrown off which was caused by my shocks being worn out. Therefore my death wobble was essentially caused by bad shocks in the end. I am...
