Question about 2009 Jeep Wrangler
What you have is called "death wobble" Most common causes include: steering box starting to tear away from the chassis, worn track bar mount tabs on differential or worn tb bushings, worn ball joints. This said, it can also be caused by improperly installed wheels (wrong tightening pattern and improper torque), or a combination of small amounts of wear in several pivot points or front end bushings. It is not related to the steering stabilizer (sideways shock on suspension) That part is often blamed. Wobble can and will damage it and indeed it may need replacement but only changing that will be a short term fix and the problem will be back in a week or less.
In extreme cases, front end caster angle can be moved slightly more positive but care must be taken that pinion angle is not altered too much.
