    Have you had someone turn the steering wheel while you watch that bracket and bolts to make sure it's not moving?

    Aside from properly torqued bolts, check bushings too.

    DEATH WOBBLE : What it is, What it isn't and What You Can Do to Fix it

    Last week I wheeled Rubicon and then Fordyce. A pretty tough week for the Jeep. After those two, I started experiencing DW, in the usual situation (35-40 mph, going straight over rough road, expansion joints, train tracks, etc.). I also got it sometimes while braking. Track bar bolts tight. Ball joints and unit bearings show no excessive movement. I did a five tire rotation and low and behold, almost all the DW was gone. Still feel it starting once in a while, mostly while braking. Bottom line, it seems there can be a number of disparate causes of DW.

    I just installed this OE style replacement. The bushings appear to be beefier and can’t really beat the price.

    As far as ball joints, I went Dynatrac. Not the cheapest, but give Exodus Jeeps a look for those.
    You know if that fits a 2016

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
