Bent drag link'


yes it will, your wheel alignment is out to blazes, you will wear your tyres out really fast and your steering will be vague. very dangerous. very hard to straighten the drag link safely because once straightened will bend easier next time. My recommendation is replace the drag link and have the wheel alignment done by a professional

Jeep with lift kit installed shakes and shimmies when speed is over 55 mph especially when brakes are applied or hit a bump.


The notorious "Death Wobble". You need to go out and buy 2 stabilizer links for the front end. They look like glorifed shock absorbers. One end attachs to the frame and the other to the drag link. You need 2, don't bother trying to cheap out with 1. There's a reason why they call it "Death Wobble"

Front end Vibration is felt when I hit a bump in the road and it stops when I hit another bump in the road, why is this happening


You need to get this checked out immediately. You are most likely looking for worn out tie rod ends, ball joints and the rest of the steering assembly depending on what you are driving. It is also likely to be a combination of bad parts so make sure shocks or struts and control arm bushings are checked as well.

If you are driving a jacked up truck with 33" or bigger tires it could also be the infamous "death wobble". There's a reason they call it that and you will need to get stabilizers attached to the drag link to eliminate it. They look like long shock absorbers and mount between the frame and the drag link. Hope this helps.

Jack up the wheel and see if it has play up and down and left and right. Have someone watch inboard as you move it. A bad cluck will usually show itself.
