    Thanks for the feed back. While Iím glad itís correct i still canít figure this death wobble out. Checked the torque on all the front arms and track bar. Will recheck tie rod tomorrow. Torqued the wheels and even swapped front to rear (had them balanced twice with no changes). The saga continues.

    Check to ensure ball joint nuts are tight and track bar bolts are torqued properly to 125 foot pounds. Check drag link and tie rod nuts also. And of course ensure your lug nuts are tight.
    Should all the suspension components be torqued to 125 foot pounds or are there different amounts depending on the component? What is a reliable source for these torque specs?

    Axle Upgrade/Minimum Scrub Radius

    After you have checked the front track bar, check the usual causes of death wobble: play in the ball joints and wheel bearings. Donít assume that they are fine because they are new or near new.

    I will have the shop check these out tomorrow but I guess I would be very surprised that Dynatrac would have not caught this in QC before sending out. In my email correspondence with Cory at Dynatrac he has not referenced checking their work once and says it has to be something else. He very well may be right but at this point when youíve checked everything else youíre left with checking the not so obvious or expected. Thanks for the direction!!

    So I found that the front upper shock bolts needed to be tightened. Weíll see if this fixes the problem. At this point Iím still going to rent a U-Haul trailer to get my Jeep to Moab. Too uncertain about death wobble to flat tow?

    Can you post a picture of front axle which shows tie rod end to end and steering linkage? I want to see drag link/track bar angles etc.

    Tough to see with splash shield and stabilizer in the way but it doesnít look like they are parallel. Tie rod looks like it is bent weird too. Try having someone saw the steering wheel back and forth sharply and look for movement in joints and track bar bushings.

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.
