Question about 2004 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

Death wobble at 40-45 mph the steering will shake violantly, I have the tires balanced and a new stabilizer put on and the front end allinged and the track bar seems tight. I have a Rubicon with 265-75-16 tirs and there is a winch on front.I bought this used about 3 weeks ago. I'm driving down the road going around 30-35 mph and all of a sudden my entire jeep shakes violently, I wasn't braking or shifting gears at the time. I pulled over checked for flat tire (thats what it felt like) and hopped back in and it drove fine. I need to know if this sounds like a classic death wobble. Thanks so much.

When they did the alignment did they notice anything broke or missing? most shops will not do alignment unless everything looks brand new. these vehicles along with the cherokee and grand cherokee are notorous for the sway bar end links breaking up towards the top of the link. check that and grad both driveshaft and push up and down and pull side to side on them if there is movement then change the u-joints. when alignment was done did they do 2 or 4 wheel alignment? rear mount could be broke also, depends on what set-up you have and how hard the person before you was on the jeep. they are alot more things this could be also? are the tires wearing different? check all 4 for signs, inside worn more then outside, cupping, feathering etc. just lay your hand flat and run it across the tire should go pretty smooth. this could also be a steering problem, you emntioned that it does not do it all the time? start checking these things if you haven't already and let me know i would love to help im a jeep fan also i own two of them. good luck and let me know
