I dont know what to do!? i feel sick to the stomach....

so i have the death wobble......

got off the phone with the Jeep shop $4000 estimate to fix my jeep, he says every thing needs to be replaced. i got so sick by the prices i couldnt even hear what he was saying anymore. 1200 control arms,208, 40, front ball 975, 330, 175, 150, 565. . . .for this for that.

10 months ago they fixed my jeep that had a shimmy. now this. i cant pay that. 10 months ago i replaced things and had to get new tires... $3000 total.

1)New front Track Bar
2)Replaced Steering Stablizer
3)Replaced Axe Seals


i dont know what to do. i dont have the money to do this. i have to pick it up and drive it like it is. if i hit a bump under 30 it goes into a shake and i have to stop.

I know i bought a jeep with a lift and this is my fault but i need to just get rid of this thing and get a normal car. I never had these problems with my f150 or my mustang. I am a first time jeep owner and its just not for me.

Not to be a jerk but it is time to start learning how to work on your Jeep. The Ball Joints are not hard to do. Your front steering is not hard either with the right kit. The instructions will walk your through it. Also get involved with a good jeep club and...IF you feed them and beer them they will come. Call Rebel offroad, River City offroad, Just Jeep Gear.com, or Krawl Offroad.... to set you up with the parts. You can easily cut that cost in half by doing it yourself.Also you will more than likely upgrade your rig in a big way. You will also get to know your jeep which is important if you are ever out on a trail and break.

Sorry for the tough love but that is what I would do and did.

Here's a thought:

It's a jeep, not a tank. Stop beating the shit out of it and it might treat you better. If you can't afford to wheel it like you stole it, might be time to stop doing that. Ask anyone who has wheeled with me how often they see me. It ain't very - because I can't be dumping cash into my Jeep every time I break something. I typically wheel like a pussy for the same reason stated above. Sure, I would love to be rolling on 40's with Dana 60 axles and a 6.1L hemi or even a diesel 4banger under there, but I can't afford that kinda shit, so I don't try to wheel like I have them.

I have worked on cars before. just busy at work and dont have a garage. i will have to do this because i cant afford otherwise. This has become a nightmare. And another thing. i am not an offroading guy, meaning i dont set it up and go off roading. I do go off road that any SUV could handle when i go camping. I just liked the set up and look of the Jeep, i dont abuse it like you guys do or like i did drag racing my mustang.

after you check out planman's guide, I am sure you can find some other jeeper in Maryland that can help you with this.

This part is pretty much in your control to remedy and to do it for much less... probably less than half of what they've "estimated". Consider taking it back to stock if you have to. Consider all the various suspension systems and parts that people have for sale. JKO, CL, etc. Even if you're not a seasoned mechanic and even if you don't have all the necessary tools, you can always borrow tools, rent tools, and even have an instal party to get this thing fixed and fixed right. The worst is that you've busted a few knuckles and paid for some pizza and beer. On the plus side... you've made some friends, correctly fixed the issue(s), and gained some knowledge. I'm still not at all convinced that your entire system needs to be replaced anyway.

THIS however is the portion of what you wrote that I would be more concerned with. Yep... Jeeps are definitely not for everybody. And I have seen plenty of Jeeps up for sale just because of the dreaded DW. In some instances it can take days or even weeks to begin to feel safe again. The experience can be so psychologically frightening that an owner will simply throw the keys to the first used car-dealer they see and say "FUCK THIS!". That's the issue that I think you need to address. If a Jeep with DW isn't ( understandably) for you than that's one thing, but if a Jeep that has been fixed properly and handles safely STILL isn't for you then yea... I would look at just letting go of it and move on.

Cool. Just keep believing that because your jeep doesn't often see trails, it's completely unpossible for it to break. Ever. That'll make everything all better.

Why bother your FIL with this? He's got better shit to do, I'm sure. Why would you not begin going thru it on your own and call him when you have it nailed down and just need an extra pair of hands to get it sorted?

It's amazing what a good group of people with a little wrenching experience, a common interest and a genuine desire to help others can accomplish. The beer (and/or food) helps too lol.

Also get another opinion. It just doesn't seem reasonable you should have to throw everything away and start over again. Best of luck with the Jeep and hope it works out for you.

I agree, either take it back to stock with take-off parts from CL, forums, etc...I sold most of suspension parts pretty damn cheap.

- OR -

Bust a knuckle, find some friends, get dirty and replace the parts you listed above by yourself and keep it.

I'm on Jeep #3, had the DW on Jeep #2 and just couldn't shake it...Jeep nor the offroad shop.

Another solution: Don't drive 30 MPH. Drive 27 or 33 MPH, or gun it.

i am down for the work to get this fixed. Then sell it. Having this problem come back once a year when i donít go off roading costing me a lot of money is not worth it to me. I KNOW ITS MY FAULT. I am not blaming the Jeep brand. I have just lifted trucks, lowered sports cars, and modded bikes. I have never had such problems with other vehicles. Jeep also falls on its face and has no power. I have had every vehicle known to man and I just am not a Jeep guy, ive learned that the hard way.

How much can i sell a Jeep with a DW problem, how much under KBB compaired to one that does not have the problem.?

Relax. It will work out. What dealer did you got to? Adams Jeep is in Aberdeen, not far from Parkville. They have a great rep and do all kinds of lifts, etc. There are also tons and tons of Jeepers in your area. Find a local club and reach out for some help.

What lift do you have? Take some pics of the front suspension parts from a few angles and post them here.

I'm in Maryland, but a bit far to come take a look or I would. Just to give you and idea, you could replace almost all of your front end components with much better quality stuff for around $2000 doing it yourself and I doubt you need everything. You could probably buy every tool to do it with for less than $200.

You may get differing opinions but I wouldn't allow myself to take a significantly hard hit on the selling price. I would disclose that there is a handling problem but I don't know that I would come down too much on the kbb value. You may want to realistically knock off a couple grand because I honestly think that it won't take more than that for someone to fix it.... even less if someone wants to take it back to stock specs. I personally would try to fix this problem even if I decided that I wanted out of it altogether. That way you could stand firm on a higher asking price.

IDK... just me personally, I will NOT sell something that is problematic, or that I feel is taking advantage of the buyer... I don't care if it's a vehicle, an appliance... anything! I want to treat the potential buyer in the same way that I would want them to treat me. That doesn't mean disclosing every little thing about what you didn't like about the product, but at the very least... being honest about any major issues, safety issues, etc. I don't screw people... period. Not ethical nor responsible to take advantage of someone in that way... especially regarding something related to safety.

I dont know much a bout much so i dont give to much tech advice but every one seems to think that a steering stablizer is just a bandaid and does not fix the prob but if it gives you enough time to fix the problems one at a time... seems like a damn good bandaid...if you replaced it 10 months ago and maby you could get 6-8 out of another one to give you some time.

Just a thoght.

If you are saying you can punch through the DW, then I would suspect you don't have DW at all. DW will require you to come to a complete stop to get it to end. You might have something as simple as tires out of balance.

As for trusting and believing in your jeep after DW, it took me a good two months before I would do 65 on the highway again.

From my experience on a TJ with DW the steering stabilizer does not work, it may decrease it, but won't rid the vehicle of it.

As for selling it, I would disclose any issue there are with it unless you are trading it in on another vehicle, then it becomes the dealers responsibility...they will typically road test the vehicle any way. I certainly would not take a hit on your selling price, it's bound to be an easy fix and if the new buyer wanted to go back to stock the current parts can be sold to compensate for the purchase of OE parts.

Maybe someone mentioned it but is the trackbar mounting holes wallowed out any?
Does the bolt fit snuggly in the holes for the track bar?

Start simple and swap the tires around and get them rebalanced.

Thanks. The new year is starting out fun.....
No no, I'm the forum dickface. Says so right under my username. See, I make fun of people who have tried absolutely nothing and are completely out of ideas. Because people with that sort of a defeatist attitude is kind of hilarious to me.

Douchebags spike up their hair, go to tanning salons and make the duck face in all their pictures. Totally different.

Death wobble is nothing special. All solid axle front ends have the ability to produce this unfortunate issue. As stated, Planman's guide is good stuff, read it. The solution is easier than you might think, but run through ALL the steps, no matter what you think.

4k to fix death wobble? I don't care what they install, make better, whatever..... these guys don't use lube and are planning to anally rape you.... HARD! They've apparently done it to you before and know you like what they stuck into you, otherwise, you'd have not gone back. On top of that, this shop is full of people that have no clue as to what they are doing.... this build sheet they produced has nothing to do with death wobble other then they will replace almost every part that might cause it. There is no solution here, just a hope that shit will stick if enough cash is thrown at the problem. The irony will be in the fact that you might still have the DW after all is said and done, because those parts don't cover every possible problem area, as Planman's document will point out.

Then again.... you might want to just sell the Jeep and buy something more appropriate. Hummers have IFS and will not suffer from a DW issue, Chevy trucks have IFS, Toyota trucks have IFS.... the list is long.

Before I left for Afghanistan, I lived in MD...there are quite a few great guys in the area that will give you a hand. PM me your info and I will pass it on to a couple of them that would be glad to lend a hand. They have wrenching parties all the time so it wouldn't be anything for them to take a look at your jeep with you.
