My Recall came today about the Front suspension steering Damper. Says may not effectively damp oscillation of the steering system, resulting in a sustained Shake or shimmying in the steering wheel, will be more noticeable at speeds exceeding 55 MPH.
I have for sure noticed that more after changing to my BFG KO2's 33's last month.
Jeep will replace the steering Damper. Takes 30 mins they say for that work.

I got it. For my 2018 two door. Don’t care, my steering is fine. Plus, I have a Falcon steering stabilizer and relocation bracket sitting in the garage.

My first post. Need to get a pic on here.
Got it for my 2018 JLU. Will need to see how soon the dealer will get it done.

Just came from the dealership few minutes ago. Left my car for a day. They say it´s ready. Though I feel the same wobbling like before.

It is not a damper problem supposedly, it's the steering box that needs replaced and not even that is 100%
