    Went and got the alignment done today. Figured I couldnít trust my phone. Lol but cast is right at 7 degrees. Everything else is good. Toe was off quite a bit. Hopefully everything is good and no more death wobble.

    Havenít gotten around to posting pictures, let alone taking pictures. Lol but here are some. And search wobble came back.. went to check clearances and after wards got death wobble. Need to try and figure out what is going on with my transfer case as well.

    Did a base coat on the tire carrier. Need to do a couple more coats and paint the brackets. Not wanting to remove them. Lol

    One main shitty thing that happened.. night I installed the axle, tried starting the lug and couldnít get it to start. Next day went out and threaded it on their so I thought. First couple threads messed up. Tried rethreading it. But had no luck. Contacted dynatrac and they were awesome enough to send me out a stud and retainer for the dynalocs. Not looking forward to disassembling the front hub. But it will be a great practice and learning experience.

    Assuming you got new ball joints with the new axle. How about the tie rod? There really aren't a lot of possibilities for death wobble... Check all the ends of each steering component and control arms. Something's worn or not torqued properly.

    New ball joints and new tie rod with the axle. My castor is right at 7. Need to try and adjust that. I went through everything and trackbar was a little loose. But thinking from the deathwobble. Also noticed the alignment specialist didnít align the clamps with the slots in the tie rod. Rechecked everything and itís tight. But can still feel the little wobble still. Gonna check balancing as well.

    Then for torquing things down I didnít have any luck. With the brackets being thick and stiff I have to wrench everything down.

    Get a bigger torque wrench. The suspension NEEDS the proper torque once on the ground. A six pack of your favorite brew says your torque is outta whack on something.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
