WJ death wobble
I have an 01 WJ just put a 4" RC lift on it and a set of 34" BFG at's.
From 45 to 50mph it starts to shake a bit and some times real bad, accelerating or braking (but only between them speeds) most of the time you just feel a little shake in the steering wheel as you pass that speed but if you have to drive at that speed for any amount of time it sucks!!
I just ordered a new steering stabilizer it's not in yet and I welded the track bar drop bracket cause it had a bit of play only bolted.
Any help would be appreciated

Most death wobble is caused by some loose componant.
1:Check all mounting bolts for all front suspention componants.
2:Check ball joints by supporting the axle with the wheels off the ground, grab the top and bottom of the tire and check for movement by pushing and pulling in the tire. No movement is allowed.
3:Check the steering linkage by having a helper move the steering wheel left to right with the tires on the ground 2 to 3 inches. Inspect all steering linkage and both ends of the track bar for movement. No side to side movement allowed.
