An adventure in death wobble

Post by Ak68w » Sat Feb 09, 2019 9:20 pm

I had the death wobble that occurs when going over angled bridges on my 2012 factory setup and tires. For what it’s worth the lower the tire pressure the more susceptible it seemed to be. It was pretty stressful approaching bridges and i would often slam on the brakes and slow to 50-55 to avert the DW. Sometimes it would still happen. I changed the steering box and put the thuren track bar on. No change to DW. Steering box was really worn out though. After a few couple months I put inner and outer tie rod ends and that solved the issue. I can hit the bridges doing 75 or so, and try as it might no DW. Steering is much tighter but that brought out this dead spot in my steering wheel right in the center. I’ll update on this issue later.
