  1. *another* death wobble thread

    So my ‘22 Sahara has 32k miles on it… prior repairs include an entire engine replacement (a completely different conversation) amongst other things.. but over all love the thing.

  2. Heavy Shimmy In Steering Wheel. What is it?

    Looking for help on what’s causing my steering wheel to go haywire when hitting bumps going under 50mph. I haven’t experienced this before installing my 2.5 MC lift on Friday so it’s maybe related to that. I have a month old JKS trackbar so I know it’s not that, I’ve put a wrench on every...
  3. E-Torque Jeepers w/ PSC (DW Problem)

    For those of you with the 2.0T E-Torque model with PSC, how much PSI are you at on the Apex booster? I’ve developed a shimmy when hitting small holes/bumps that at certain speeds turns into DW. For reference my jeep is on coilovers, equipped with RPMs aluminum steering (drag link flip) and...
  4. Death Wobble with factory lift?!

    I have a 2022 unlimited sahara with a factory Fox 2" lift. I did not upgrade the tires and rims yet and also have not upgraded the steering stabilizer.

  5. Tie Rod Issue?

    Question: Does my tie rod end on the driver side look normal as I turn my steering wheel back and forth? It might be hard to see from the video, but I notice a gap appears between the folds of the boot as I turn the wheels to the right. Does that imply possible damage underneath the boot...
  6. 2in Mopar lift concerns! (Solved)

SOMETIMES though, hitting the same bump at lower speeds causes the jeep...

  15. Death Wobble Poll

    I have been wondering for a while about the causes of death wobble, and realized that we should probably collect some data to see if any patterns emerge. To keep things simple, I am only interested in what your Jeep did with the stock suspension, stock wheels, and stock tires. No wheel spacers...
