I just had the front hub/bearing assemblies replaced on my 1992 YJ.
It tightened up the ride commendably (it wobbled/shook really bad at 62-65 mph,like the wheel were going to fall off).
Now, it rides better, but still seems to have some wobble in it, though not nearly as bad.
Should I replace the rear hubs too? Or fix the smaller steering parts (tie rod ends, steering damper) in the front?
Any body have an idea if one or both of these fixes will smooth/level out the ride/wobble?

Thanks in advance!

i would replace the other front end parts first it highly unlikely that you would get any wobble from the rear components

Thanks tonloco!
After looking just now for parts, I have found they don't have rear hub assemblies, at least at AutoZone and O'Reilly.

P.S. Nice to see you're from Watauga. My mom and sister currently live there. Very Happy
