Jeep TJ Wobble

Trying to get my Jeep to go into a full out Death Wobble so I can capture it on camera... I got nothing more than a good shakeup. Gives you a good idea as to how damn loud my mudders are though

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 this problem. This video outlines (in my opinion) the best first step to solving death wobble.

Death Wobble
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 over 50MPH. 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.

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.





Steering wobble cure for my jeep
My Jeep Wrangler TJ wobbled at highway speeds. It wasn't a full death wobble, just a steering wheel shake. I got underneath it and had a friend turn the wheel back and forth until I found bad bushings in the steering stabilizer. This video shows me replacing those bushings. I hope it helps.





Project-JK Tips & Tricks : The #1 Cause of Death Wobble
Come visit us at: http://www.WAYALIFE.com 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 problem. 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. For more information on how you can solve your death wobble, visit http://www.wayalife.com





Wrangler death wobble issues
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 (i know this is not what it's called) and the pitman arm "tie rod" (again, wrong terminology) normal? Should it be making that knocking sound when I move it? Should any of those components be moving when I turn them?

PLANMAN explains Common source of death wobble on Jeep JK Wranglers
To understand your front end and see a Death Wobble Diagnosis, you need to watch my 2 other videos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9uQwlmlhiF4&list=UUKzIyplv3FIj1EXoFsRG0qg&in dex=6 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ii81V7XYr-k&list=UUKzIyplv3FIj1EXoFsRG0qg Northridge4x4.com now has a solution for the undersized bolt issue that is more affordable than sourcing the hardware yourself. http://northridge4x4.com/shop/nr4x4-jeep-jk-hardware-kit Chrysler decided to use 14 mm bolts for the front trackbar on 07-12 Jeep JKs even though the stock bracket holes and the trackbar end bolt sleeve holes are 9/16". This is a common source of Death Wobble for 07-12 Jeep JKs because if the stock bolts are not correctly torqued and periodically retorqued, the looseness or play of the 14 mm bolts in the 9/16" bracket holes ends up ovaling/wallowing the holes out--allowing even more play/looseness. When the bolts are not sufficiently torqued and the bolt holes are ovaled/wallowed out, and the suspension hits a pothole, railroad track, or some other road imperfection, the front end suspension and steering can get thrown into a very violent harmonic type resonance that can end up damaging the rest of the front end components (ball joints, drag link ends, tie rod ends, unit bearings, front upper axle side control arm bushings, etc.). Death wobble is so violent that it can crack or tear off stock trackbar brackets and welds. Death wobble requires coming almost to a complete stop to get the harmonic resonance/vibration/wobble to stop. It is dangerous because the driver can lose control of their vehicle. It is vital to stop driving a vehicle that has had even one episode of death wobble and immediately diagnose and fix the source(s) of the problem. Death wobble is relatively simple to diagnose and fix through a series of component inspections. I have posted write-ups on several jeep related forums about how to diagnose and fix death wobble. Generally, post #1 explains DW, and post #2 gives an inspection checklist. Google:

Jeep Wrangler Death Wobble. U-Joint Wear..mov





Jeep Problem-
My 2005 Jeep Wrangler shakes violently and Chrysler will not acknowledge the issue! 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 since. 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.
