when ever I am on the freeway whenever I get about 70-75 the wheel starts to wobble a little bit, I am not sure if this is the claimed death wobble since its not that bad, but the stearing wheel starts to vibrate and gets annoying as hell. I just put new tires on it and they should be balanced, could this be the rout of the problem or what?

It could be the balance, I'm not an expert or anything. Try checking your steering damper. I screwed up the stock one the first time I took my jeep out, didn't even do anything that extreme either. Basically all the fluid leaked out and I had to fight the steering wheel all the time. They are real easy to replace. I had to by a puller to get the press fitting out.

Its just a thought. If you haven't done any real off roading this probably isn't the problem.

Nope, that's not death wobble. You'll know when it's death wobble - you can barely control it and it feels like your death is imminent. Wink

I'd check to be sure that all the suspension components are tight, your bearings are good, you don't have any bent rims and the new tires aren't out of round. Oh yeah, slow down. Mr. Green

If only I had a dime (adjusted for inflation, of course) for every time I've heard that line.

I found out what was wrong. when I got new tires put on the dumbass put the wrong weights on and they fell off. so far its only the drivers side so I took care of that and now rides like it should.

You have never experienced death wobble till you have a full coil sprung vehicle with 6" of lift and 35" tires start shaking under you...

I was sitting 2" higher up in my seat be the time I slowed down and got it under control... (Trackbar bolt broke....)

YOu will never mistake death wobble for anything once you experience it...

And if you lift your Jeep .. You probobly will experience it... But its normally easily curtailed and you can go about your life..


Then you can tell your horrible death wobble stories... rofl rofl
