Aside from “What should I name my Jeep?” posts on social media, I believe that the age old question of “Why does my Jeep have death wobble?” is the most common question posted.
Listen to me, it is NOT the steering stabilizer, NOR is it time to install a dual-steering stabilizer!!!My JK recently developed death wobble at +90,000 miles and after proper diagnosis, which is explained very well in the video below, I determined that it was my track bar bushings.
The moral of the story is that death wobble is not going to be the least costly, and simplest part to replace. I will go out on a limb and state that bad track bar bushings are ultimately the most over-looked cause of death wobble, once properly diagnosed.
I have also heard through the grape-vine that Jeep may be replacing track bars on new JL’s that experience death wobble???
Not only is the STEERSMARTS track bar a solid replacement, it adds even more red to the underneath of my silver Jeep!!!
