I'm having a problem that the mechanics came seem to locate. If I'm traveling above 40 mph and hit a bump or pot hole on the passenger front side, the front right suspension will start a kind of up and down continuous hop and won't stop until I slow down. I've had it in the shop multiple times and no one sees a suspension problem. One co-worker says he's had it and has talked to others that have it in Jeep Wranglers. Any one have any comments or suggestion on a fix?

Death wobble maybe? Sure sounds like it. What has changed lately? In other words, any tire rotation, front end alignment etc. done? What about lift. Are talking about a stocker here or do you have a lift? If so, it'd be helpful to include those details.

Check and re-check:
-Track Bar (i.e. torque/tight)
-Font end alignment
-Tire wear

Just a couple ideas to check...for now anyway. Typically DW is caused by the above things (or combination thereof).

It's a stock 2005 Unlimited. About 6 months ago I had caliper stuck on the front right and had that fixed as well as a front end alignment. Didn't have the problem until about a month ago. I'm suspecting alignment and tire wear but am going to check the track bar to make sure it's really tight
