truck back in shop for the death wobble

sent the truck intoa different shop wed for a set of fresh eyes for the wobble.
got the call friday that they found some stuff
blown passenger side steering stabilizer
passenger tie rod
front shocks loose at the top (my fault)
pure performance adj track bar destroyed= bushing bad (hole for greese fitting but no grease fitting installed), adjustment frozen (no anti sieze used), end sleeve is egged out and wobbles-- must have been put on right out of the box since he said the front rear is still off center-

he ordered the shock and a new track bar.....

sounds like a healthy bill- hopefully this solves the issues.....

Had the same issues not too long ago. Took several visits to the same dealership to get everything straightened out and working correctly. I required a new track bar because the bushing in it was beat to $hit. Also needed a new draglink, castor adjusters, and steering gear. The aftermarket/direct replacement steering stabilizer I put on prior to my major death wobble experiences was leaking. Decided to put on a dual steering stabilizer with Bilstein shocks and a PMF heavy duty draglink and track bar. So far, so good. All the aftermarket parts have been great.
