Re: Yet another death wobble help request

And ball joints???

I had the same problem as you do. I replaced, tightened, checked and re-checked everything on the front end and nothing helped. The I removed the steering knuckle and found the ball joints were bad,....especially the lowers. They showed no up and down movement when everything is installed. Dismantled, they had plenty of side to side movement. My highway speed have moved from 40 MPH to upward of 80 MPH after they were replaced.

Proper balancing of the tires and alignment are crucial.
