First off, I'm not looking for any free advertising. I own a small mfg co. building steering and suspension components, and I would like to know what your favorite pet peeve is on your Jeep. I have read about wandering and death wobble issues. Is this a major problem on Jeeps?

Dodge pickups from 94 and up have a lot of these same problems, and since the suspension is basically the same, I was just assuming the Jeeps have the same issues and could be corrected similarly.

Thank you for any feedback you all can provide.

i can't complain about my steering because i just replaced every part in the system , it works great .

however its all fairly light duty stuff , which usually bends like spaghetti Smile

word on the street is they can wobble pretty good , just nether of mine do .

I was a machinist for about 15 years. I used to set-up and run CNC lathes/mills, Warner & Swasey, Acme Gridley, Conomatic automatic bar and chucking machines. What kind of machinery do you have?

Would you believe a 1946 9" Southbend!!! Yup, that and a torch, grinder and a couple welders. Almost forgot about the BFG.

Told ya I had a SMALL mfg co! I used to do everything myself, but, things just got WAY too busy. Now I've hired a machine shop to build everything. Decent tooling would be completely out of my realm. The shop I hire just spent 1.2 million on a new powdercoater alone Shocked
I sell a line of Dodge and Ford pickup steering and suspension components that I designed. So, I thought of looking into the Jeep market.

Glad to hear there are other chip makers out there.
