    Yep just went through this. Check tie rod ends, drag link ends, track bar bushings, bolts to the track bar bracket, ball joints, and unit bearings . Doubt it’s tires unless balance is way off . DW sucks good luck

    Well it's official... I have DW. Coming off the trail last weekend I felt it when hitting potholes on the fire road. When I connected the swaybar it went away but it still felt like it kind of wanted to. This week I have checked all the bolts and everything seems fine. I replaced the drag link joints on both ends but I still get DW when I hit a bump on one side while the sway bar is disconnected. Everything felt solid before the Trail run.... and the Jeep only has 15,000 miles on it. Ball Joints? Track Bar Bushings are damaged? I'm trying to figure out my next move.

    Pretty sure the crown replacements come with the good bushings.

    What Adam said, but if you're looking for more, I can't say enough good things about the Currie Currectlync steering setup.

    Have one sitting in my garage. I'm not home now and won't be for awhile. If I can get my son to find it , maybe we can work out a way of getting it to you. We're talking 2011 track bar correct?

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.
