Ty Tom I'll give it a look

hey bro i own a 2007 jeep wrangler jk. i love my jeep. its the only reason i didnt pour gasoline all over it and set it on fire after repeatedly trying to exorcise the death wobble from her. but i finally fixed the problem. after doing the usual inspection for anything loose etc - i started replacing parts - steering stabilizer, added a heavy duty track bar, replaced the drag link, upper and lower control arms, shocks, even did the tire rotation and balance act - nope - still had death wobble. i finally replaced my ball joints - and THAT was the issue. ball joints. after almost a year and a half of waiting for death wobble to occur every time id hit a bump between 50 and 65 (i even kept off the beltway and used local routes because i didnt know what else to do) ive finally gotten rid of DW by replacing the ball joints on my jeep. its been a month and so far so good - and if you have DW you know when another jeep rider says “so far so good…” he means it. ball joints.
