k so I just realized that I made an account years back haha but never logged on

Lets talk about this. All of us with them big trucks know what the death wobble is about right? Well I've got my jeep xj with 7" of lift and 35" boggers. Great on the trails, scary as hell on pavement ! I've swapped every bolt, every bushing, every tie rod and got all new components with the lift kit. Still wobbles to this day, I've ended up snapping the motor mount bolts from this annoying wobble

My next option is to install long arms and get 1 ton knuckles and steering components with hem joints, if any one has other promising suggestions please let me know
Or ill be forced to buy and build my nemesis... The yota haha :P

i cant see you snapping your motor mount bolts from death wobble, you probably had stock bolts in there an they finally let go!

hows your track bar angle? is your steering stock? do u have a steer stabilizer? pics of steering/front end

what type of lift? side pic of the jeep and pic of steering would really help us help you...
don't talk silly and go getting a lazy vehicle (yota) thats always napping on the flat spots in trails... usually on there sides leaking fluids on the ground. i figure its the yota's way of having a wet dream of being a jeep. :)

Yep I got stock steering other than a new stabilizer and tracbar. I installed a 6.5" rough country lift, I need the long arms asap and new steering arms with hem joints :) I had it at 9" once and that was a death trap ! Hahaha so back to 7" it went. I think I should re and re the ball joints and my steering box should get replaced too.. I agree that yotas are lazy wheels hahaha

7" short arm lift? There's your problem right there, your control arms are prolly too much of a angle and that's what's causing your weeble wobble lol, bet if u put a long arm kit in it will almost completely vanish


That plus Boggers & wobble go hand n hand,
