Hello,

Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to help you with your concern today.

Is the jeep lifted/modified suspension or tires at all? Or bone stock?

Customer reply replied 21 days ago
small lift tires not real big
Jeep Mechanic: Joe, ASE Certified Technician replied 21 days ago

Lift is crucial depending on who made it, cheap kits have issues. I presume everything is tight up front?

Are you using a single or dual steering stabilizer? And how old is it?

Ask Your Own Jeep Question
Customer reply replied 21 days ago
single and new one put on yes all new up front
Jeep Mechanic: Joe, ASE Certified Technician replied 21 days ago

And I can assume the new one was done in order to try and correct the problem?

Any play in the gearbox?

Ask Your Own Jeep Question
Customer reply replied 21 days ago
no
Jeep Mechanic: Joe, ASE Certified Technician replied 21 days ago

If wheels are held tight you should not be able to move that wheel side to side without feeling the tires also try to move.

that's good
Jeep Mechanic: Joe, ASE Certified Technician replied 21 days ago

ok so youre saying no play then?

Ask Your Own Jeep Question
Customer reply replied 21 days ago
what about a camber correction kit
Customer reply replied 21 days ago
no play front end aligned
Jeep Mechanic: Joe, ASE Certified Technician replied 21 days ago

That'd be determined by a good offroad/liftkit place that knows what they are doing with alignments, the machine would determine if camber were out.

Ask Your Own Jeep Question
Jeep Mechanic: Joe, ASE Certified Technician replied 21 days ago

Camber is part of alignment.

Ask Your Own Jeep Question
Customer reply replied 21 days ago
ok
Jeep Mechanic: Joe, ASE Certified Technician replied 21 days ago

Do you happen to know what type of lift kit and how tall?

Things like spacers vs good springs make a huge difference, so do control arms, bars, etc.

Often times these jeeps are lifted and all the sudden they have death wobble that is so highly known issue among jeep owners. But a lot of it has to do with tires and type of lift kit, how it was installed, certain pieces not used that should have been and then proper alignment.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5-star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today.
