I have been getting some nasty death wobble lately (no this isn't a typical DW discussion so PLEASE read on). When I hit about 45 mph and slow down the front end shakes violently. It wasn't happening all of the time and usually wasn't that much of a problem. It was getting annoying though so I took it to get an alignment. HA! That was no bueno. Now it does it all of the time. Here is what I have done:
rotated the tires (i have dyna beads and thought maybe they weren't balancing the tires well enough)...that didn't work
put on my neighbors stock JK wheels and tires still thinking it was the dyna beads...no change
pulled the axle shafts...everything is fine.
pulled off the front diff cover...everything is fine.
tightened everything. the trackbar was a little loose on the frame side...no luck.
my drag link (the PP flip kit) seems to have a little play on the knuckle side but I really don't think that would do it.
last night when pulling the jeep into the garage i noticed a little twitch in the front axle. that is when i checked the axle, diff and track bar. It still twitches and still has DW.
The driveshaft doesn't seem to be affected. 4wd lo and hi work fine (we had some snow the other night to test it out on).
One would probably think the alignment shop has something to do with it. I measured the toe angle last night and I was really toe'd out. I adjusted the tie rod and toe'd her back in but that didn't do anything.
Thanks all for any help you can provide.
I should change my screen name to 1shkyjeep
