well being i am having dw problems and other things i have decided to redo it all. i am going to stock up on steel to make control arms...long front and rear. going to get a parttime case for it some better axles and do lots of trimming. the front is going to be wat different. and it might be fenderless and doorless.

Is that a matter of tire balance or suspension pieces? I've heard this and it is general been related to not having tires balanced. Even with worn out suspension pieces, the MudRaider quit it's wobbling after putting the air-soft pellets in the tires.

Death wobble in a jeep is not just a tire balance issue. It will scare the shit out of you. Its a violent shacking of the steering and wheels. Usually comes from worn suspension. It sounds and feels like ur axle is going to jump right out from under ur jeep. A little tire out of balance would be a cake walk compared to a bad death wobble.

Death wobble in a jeep has a variety of factors. One of which could be tires. Also suspension, alignment, ball joints, wheel bearings all are contributing factors to check. Start small and easy and go from there. Alignment n balance first because no parts needed then go from there if problem persist. Goodluck with your demon.
