Once you have slowed down or hit the brakes,does the problem reoccur when you speed back up?If so,there is a very good chance that the steering alignment has been put well and truly out.An alignment at the least.Get the steering etc,checked for bent rods and at the most a broken mount on the chassis.Hope this helps

The problem you have is called "Death Wobble" and is well known in the Jeeping community. It is almost always caused by a loose track bar, either at the axle end or frame end. First check the tightness of the bolts at both ends. Any play in the track bar will cause death wobble. A certain cure is a new track bar with the fasteners torqued to the correct specs. Most of the time though, just tightening the bolts at the frame and axle ends will cure the "shakes". The grey bar in the picture is the track bar.

I have a 2007 unlimited 4 door . I went over a very bumpy road half way through the jeep was shaking like a tire was falling off and my steering was tight.


its your steering dampener. It is inadequate. If you dont get it fixed it could eventually snap your dampener off of your front axle where it is welded. This happened to mine. Jeep is aware of the problem, but doesn't like aknowledging it because it is referred to as the "death wobble." Jeep fixed it by putting an upgraded steering dampener on and i haven't had the problem since

Cgeck for play in the track bar , it goes from frame to front diff. Get a friend to move the steering wheel from left to right ( engine off ) about an 1/8 of a turn back and forth and watch for play in the steering and suspension parts. good luck.

Sounds like a short in the electrical system. Maybe even just a loose ground wire. On the other hand...It could just as easily be a bad ECM (BRAIN)! Warranty still in tact? I hope so. Diagnostic at a certified Jeep shop... Good Luck!

Front end shakes so much it looks like the wheels are falling off


What you have is called death wobble. Generally it is caused by one or several loose components in the steering. You need to have all mounts including where steering box is attached to the chassis checked. Often the problem is caused by either bad ball joints or track bar ends or mounts. Wheel stud torque is also important. if any brake, tire, or other front end work has recently been done, this may be the cause. One item often suggested by shops is the steering stabilizer. It is often damaged by the shaking but if replaced will not cure the problem and will be damaged again.
If everything in the front end is carefully checked and verified as good, then as a last resort, have some additional positive caster added to the front end alignment. That often helps.

Front end wobble at 50 mph or when I hit a bump or pot hole in my 2005 Wrangler


Your tie rod nut needs tightning, the extra play causes the front end to vibrate or wobble your vehicle and sterring wheel.

look under the car where your steering wheel gear box connects to the tie rod, see if the nut and carter key have slop in it.

if so, take the carter key out and tighten the nut and then replace the carter key as it was.

the test it on some bumps and potholes.

2007 jeep wrangler shakes uncontrollaby after


When you say shakes i am guessing the steering wheel. If it is the steering wheel shaking, it's know as the death wobble. Check the front steering components, look for worn or broken parts. Most common for death wobble are the tie rod ends, idler arm and pitmen arm. look for play along the track bars and check the ball joints. The other thing too that will cause a death wobble is a bad alignment. there may be negative or no caster at all which would give you a death wobble. Check all of the above and keep me posted. Good luck and be safe
