    Thread: Death Wobble

    1. 03-16-2012 03:21 PM #1
      So I am getting the dreaded wobble at about 42 MPH on my 01 AR. I put 2 piece 19" wheels on and it got worse. I have replaced the wheels back to factory with new tires but when I went to get an alignment, they were unable to loosen the inner tie rod bolts. Has anyone had this issue? Any suggestions?

      Also, I have heard to fix the wobble, I am going to need a stabalizer bar....can someone point me in the right direction to get one. I plan on redoing tie rods, the stabalizer bar and rotors in hopes that this fixes the issue. Anything else I need to do? Please help!

      I also have the wobble...only suggestion on the outer tie rods is replace the inner and outer. If they are frozen they will not come apart(ask me how I know). The wobble is usually linked to bad inboard CV joints. Jack it up and see how much slop you have on the inner CV's. I have a new axle to put in, just need to find the time.

      I changed the all 4 axles, new tires, new wheels, new brakes, new rotor, new control arms.....im at a loss! Im thinking rear drive shaft and/or motor mounts.....any suggestions?

      If you still changed all of that and still have the problem, you may have to replace this:
      Drive Shaft Support Bearing

      What kind of CV's did you use as replacements?
