Tom, not for nothing forget the jeep they are nothing but problems. If you still buy it could be something simple a hundred dollars, or possibly 11,000.00 or so in front end parts...

I just purchased a fully restored 79 CJ7 with a v8 304 in March. I had the same problem. Felt like I was driving a Gallon of water that was half way full swashing back and forth. The jeep felt very loose. I installed a steering stabilizer and all is good.
