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.

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.





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

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.

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:





Death Wobble - Track Bar Conversion to Fix Death Wobble - KevinsOffRoad.com
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 are involved. 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 stiffer. 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 give us a shout. Our e-mail address is sales@kevinsoffroad.com ... and if you want to give us a call it's 602-841-3355. Thank you very much! I really appreciate it, and let us know how we can assist.
