    After much research here and on other forums my deathwobble is now resolved. This will be a rather long post as I want to be as detailed as possible. My DW was caused by a couple of problems that I have seen documented here before and one that I have not seen. Before I installed the lift...

    Ok. At first, I was not able to drive 60mph because the jeep would death wobble. I could drive 58, or 62 without issue, but not 60. I rotated the tires today, and now I have the DW at 55, and it is way worse. This is STOCK. I did the dry steering test and everything seems to be very tight...

    Hello I'm posting because I have a few question about DW. I had DW on my Jeep two years ago but when I switched out the all-terrain tires for street tires the problem ceased.

    After years of reading the forums I was amazed on how many people discussed "death wobble." I was always glad it never occurred to me until a few weeks ago when it happened for the first time. "Holy *&#@!" comes to mind. It occured when I ran over a deep expansion joint on the highway at about...

    Hi Gang I've done a lot of reading here, and picked up some great tips about Front End Death Wobble. I'm a 62 year old Wrangler owner, and do NOT have any souped-up lift conversions, or anything like that. My Jeep is STOCK with 62K miles. However, even Stock Wranglers can be afflicted by Death...

    Hi, Just looking for suggestions/advice. Last Sept my jeep was inspected and tires rotated. Since then, I havent driven much over 40 miles an hour because I take the train to work and only live about a mile from the train station. And when traveling any real distance, I usually drive another...

    Control arm bushings have been debated to be a factor in death wobble. If you care to, please answer the poll based on your DW situation. This is a fact-finding effort only. I do not intend to rehash the merits of any of the bushings listed. Thanks!

    I recently got a 4 inch lift with 33X12.5 in tires. My problem is that when im driving faster than maybe 30 or 40 and i hit a bump i get severe, uncontrollable tire shaking so much that i have to pull over and stop to get it to stop shaking. There is also something that is causing my front tires...

    I have a 2006 Wrangler X. It has about 23K miles on it. It is a 6 speed transmission with the 4.0 engine, and the Jeep is completely stock. At 50 MPH, the jeep vibrates. It vibrates with or without the top down. It vibrates uphill, downhill and on flat road (I think it is worse downhill)...
