Death Wobble - The First Step To Solving The Problem!
Death Wobble - a quick (4–10 Hz) oscillation of primarily just the
steerable wheel(s) of a vehicle. Initially, the rest of the vehicle remains
mostly unaffected, until translated into a vehicle yaw oscillation of
increasing amplitude producing loss of control.
Coil-sprung vehicles with a track bar setup such as the Jeep WJ, XJ, ZJ,
TJ, and JK with both stock and after-market suspension lifts often have

After my 3.5" lift, this started to happen. No matter how much I torque
down my JKS adjustable track bars this happens when I hit a moderate bump
THis is just a very minor wobble, but even then you can see me start to
swerve. For my own safety and the others on the road with me I did not do
this any faster.
See at 0:38 I hit RR tracks at 45mph and no wobble. at 0:50 I hit a bump
on a bridge doing 53MPH and you can hear it continue for 10+ seconds after.
Jeep Death Wobble
My Jeep doing a death wobble after comming home from wheeling. Would do it
after hitting 60 km/h. Mud getting into the tire from loosing a bead on the
trail was the cause.

I can't count how many times we've come off the trail and heard someone on
the CB yell out that they've got death wobble. After pulling over and
giving things a quick look to make sure nothing is broken, I have the
driver help me perform this simple test.
Turn your key to the ON position but do not start your engine. Have the
driver slowly turn the steering wheel to one side and then the other while
you keep an eye on the front track bar. 9 out of 10 times, this is the
Some times it's on the frame end and some times it's a blown bushing
instead of a loose bolt but the one thing for sure is, the problem is
almost always track bar related. Normally, a 21mm socket and a torque
wrench set to 125-130 ft. lbs. of torque would be all that you need to fix
things up. However, on this Jeep, the mounting hole was pretty wollowed out
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.

My 2005 Jeep Wrangler shakes violently and Chrysler will not acknowledge
It tured out to be the tires. We went from good year to michelin and have
been driving with michelin for over a year now and it has not happened
The local dealership finally believed me after watching the video and
convinced chrysler to give me new tires.
-- If you have good year wrangler tires, this may be the problem. Good Year
will not acknowledge a problem. Be persistant with your dealership.

1999 TJ Sport... I've been having issues with some "death wobble." I think
I may have found the culprit but I'm not sure. I know the right wheel
could use a re-balance (this is the wheel that has the "wobble."
I tighten my track bar every month as I think this is a problem as well.
Now the question... Is the movement in the tie rods, the track bar tie rod

wrong terminology) normal? Should it be making that knocking sound when I
