Did you shim it properly when installing the hi-steer arms?

I had crazy death wobble on the crawler..end up being a lower shock bolt that was M.I.A.

Another thing that makes wobble is loose shackles..I can not keep those suckers tight and have to crank them down at least once during a good run.

I'm guessing he's talking about the shims that helps to properly preload the trunnion bearings..I think 15ft lbs is what is recommended when using a pull scale.

The hard part is that the wobble could be anything.. Typically I start from the tires and work my way into the suspension. Wheel balanced, ball joint play, bushings, pitman arm, etc, etc.

Although it does help to know if it's something consistent or when you get to a certain speed which narrows it down a lot more.

What type of shackles are you runnin? Do they have a welded connector bar between the the two or are they two separate plates. On my old yota that I sas'd I had serious death wobble and I was runnin shackles that weren't connected...welded a piece of tube between them and bam...death wobble gone.

Nice. If it were still there I would have suggested steering shocks... but only crappy Jeeps need those.
