I own a 96 XJ. After having a trac bar and steering stabilizer done I noticed a pretty hard shudder from the front end when going over aggressive bumps over 55mph. Shudder would stop most of the time within 2-3 seconds but sometimes would continue until I slowed down. Twice now during this shudder the trac bar lower mount bolt has broken in half.. the front part of the bolt breaks out and the trac bar drops right out of the lower mount. First time this happened a new trac bar from the dealer was put in. Seemed fine for about 2 days and a slight shudder began to develop and a week later the same thing happened, pretty hard shudder and trac bar breaks out. One other thing that is strange is when the track bar breaks out the steering wheel immediately is off center 1/4 turn one way or the other. If anyones had this same experience or has any suggestions or solutions they would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks all!

i have a 96 xj too and my jeep is doing the same thing. my steering whell is a 1/4 turn to the right off and it shutters going 45 it can get pretty bad too. i think it has something to do with the axle not being exactly centered or the joint on the track bar mount. but thats just my 2 cent
