My problem is a shake in front end at 45-55mph and a wobble at those speeds while turning to rght on highway.It all started after i hit a curb on that side furious .I've already had the front end aligned and wheels rotated and rebalanced.Jeep has 2"bb lift,rancho stabilizer and 235/75 tires.Can't see anything visibly bent.

Check to make sure all the control arms and track bar are very tight.. That is normally the problem with things like that...

OK.. Have someone lightly turn the wheel right and left while you look at the steering components and track bar.. Something is loose..



Quick right to left will do. You will see the slack if there is any...

Also... Jack it up and grab the tire top and bottom and wiggle it ... Look at the ball joints..

Then grab it at 3 and 9 and wiggle and look at the unit bearing... Do this on both sides...


That should eliminate a few more things...

I had the same problem on my 94 jgc after I replaced my factory steering stabilizer with a Rancho stabilizer. Put a new oem stabilizer back on and took the rancho back and problem was solved. No more shimmy turning to the right. Very Happy

We used to have to do what Swamp boy said in my mustang...

You don't have to worry too much about actually turning the tires...just turn the wheel enough until you can feel the resistance...




I realize it might be different than vehicles without powersteering (my mustang) but I thought I'd chime in anyway Very Happy
