How to replace the track bar in a Dodge Ram
I demonstrate a worn track bar in my 1998 Dodge Ram, and I show how I
swapped it for an aftermarket Moog bar. Track bar movement is one of the
possible causes of front end vibration, causing a syndrome of "death
wobble", sometimes described in Dodge Rams and Jeep trucks. Although I had
some steering wheel drift, I did not notice any form of front end wobble on

Death Wobble Cure: Highlights of the KevinsOffroad.com Track Bar Conversion
and Super Durometer Bushings to help stop Death Wobble on the Jeep ZJ Grand
Cherokee, the Jeep XJ Cherokee, and the Jeep MJ Comanche - KOR-9001 Track
Bar Conversion for Jeep XJ MJ ZJ
Hey guys. It's Kevin from KevinsOffroad.com . Today we are going to look
at one of our Track Bar Conversions.
This is what we use to get rid of Death Wobble on the XJ Cherokee and the
ZJ Grand Cherokee, and we've been using it for a lot of years. It seems to
work really, really well...I'm going to show you all the components that
First off, we have the lower end. That goes down on the axle side. We've
got a jamb nut that goes on over it, and then this assembly threads into
this main bar here. Now, this bar, you'll notice, has an open end...it does
not have a bushing like the normal factory track bar would. This is an
after market JKS track bar, which is mounted from the bottom side of the
Track Bar Bracket on the Jeep. This piece goes up through the bottom of
this bracket here. You can see the little hole which is left over.
This bracket has been modified with this extra piece down below. We do that
for two reasons, one to keep the cost down for you guys, but most
importantly, you'll see this rib on the back side of this bracket here.
This mounts to the frame here... you have two bolts that come up from the
bottom and two bolts that come in from the side.
When the Jeep turns left and right, the axle moves left and right, and the
Track Bar's job is to keep it positioned so that it doesn't move, so if you
don't have this rib on the back side of this thing, what happens is this
bracket actually bends like this... there are some After market brackets
that are on the market that just bend, and then you still have Death Wobble
problems, so this is very,
very important, and key to a good solid design.
The bar fits into the bottom here, and it gets a Grade 8 half-inch bolt
through it. You have your option of either the bushings that come with it
normally... these are the same bushings that would come in any after market
track bar...made by Daystar...or you have the upgraded Super Durometer
bushings that we have manufactured specifically for us.
This is an exclusive KevinsOffroad.com product... you can't get this
anywhere else. I'll show you the difference. If you squeeze this, you may
be able to see on camera how it mushrooms out a little bit. If I squeeze
this one...uurrrrr...no mushrooming. So, this is a 60 or so Rockwell
Durometer bushing, this is a 45 or so...so this one's approximately one
third to half again stiffer. I think this one might be like a 62 or 64 or
something...I'm not a hundred percent sure on that. It's much, much
What happens is that these bushings get put together as a pair, and they go
inside of this here, and then the other end goes inside, just like
that...in fact, I'll show you...maybe not very well... well, I won't waste
your time with that, but basically everything slides together... a pair
goes in here, and this tightens up the steering immensely because of the
lack of movement the track bar is allowed, because these bushings don't
crush any longer since you've got these Super Durometer bushings.
So, basically, this is why this is such a wonderful bar if you're having
Death Wobble problems. So, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to
