Death Wobble / Steering Shake Test
I tried to be as consistent as possible in these tests. Unfortunately I no
longer had the JKS track bar when I decided to make this so I used old

and we ended up having to tighten the bolt to about 140 ft. lbs. of torque
in order to get this Jeep rolling safely again. Once back at home, a washer
was welded up to the mount to make it a tight fit again.
