Re: Body shake

yep those bilsteins should also help out a lot ... do the following test it requires two people for it

Let one person get underneath the car and let the other person shake the car side to side look at where you see the most movement

next hold on to the track bar (stabilizer bar) it's the bar that sits crooked and then let the person shake the car from the outside side to side and check the movement, then you can tell if it is your track bar

for those bilsteins you can find them much cheaper at shockwarehouse and ebay for a lot cheaper !!!!

Hope that helps let us know how it turns out

Re: Body shake

X 100 on the death wobble. If you had it, you would know it because you would have been parked on the side of the road for a few min trying to catch your breath while peeling your hands out of the steering wheel.....If you didnt think you were going to die, you didnt have death wobble. Also not relative to WK's. Usually TJ's, XJ's, ZJ's and WJ's.

Re: Body shake

Too true! I've experienced it in a lifted WJ..... and I'm not easily scared, but i thought that fugger was gonna kill me! LOL

I pulled over, got out of it, and backed away slowly.
