Re: Jeep Wrangler 'Death Wobble'
In my experience (have only seen maybe 4) the death wobble
is more caused by tightening the track bars with the wheels
in midair; ie, at unloaded height. They you set it down on
the ground and the bushings add spring to the track bars.
Anyways, I've corrected a few by merely removing the bolts,
freeing the arms, lining it all up and tightening them on
the ground with a creeper. I don't know if the bushings just
wear ... oddly? While common for jeep, the geometry of the
suspension design is far from "normal."
