My Death Wobble Fix
Current suspension: 4.5 DR with TEI spacer, DR Adjustable Track Bar, Dual stabilizer, ORU 3 Link Arms, less than 20K on new ball joints and steering linkage
Never had a problem until a couple months ago. Started to get the wobble if I hit a bump with mainly the passenger side tire.
Had Caster set at 3.5 degrees and changed that to about 4.2. That helped about 65 percent.
Decided to change out the DR track bar (with bushing end) with the Carli track bar. Figured the bushing was shot and wanted to upgrade to the Carli bar. Changed out the track bar balljoint at the same time.
It is solid as a rock now. I don't remember it ever steering this good. I believe the track bar bushing was the main issue, but adding the caster certainly helped.
4.5 Icon with TEI, 3 link arms, Carli Track Bar, 14 rear springs with PMF blocks, OUO traction bars, 325/65-18 MT ATZ on 18x10 Weld Sandstorms,5 inch exhaust, SCT with Gearhead/PHP tunes, 08 Mirrors, 08 Tailgate with BU camera, Pioneer HU, JL Stealthbox sub, Edge CTS with custom mount, Coolant filter, 5" aluminum one-piece shaft
