Death wobble and brakes

Posted: May 21, 2004 in Jeep

I rotated my tires and did new brake pads and rotors yesterday. My front tires were pretty badly worn due to alignment issues. I’ll have to get the front end all set up properly once I get the adjustable track bar on.One of my goals was to remove the 1/2″ spacer I have in the front to try and reduce the death wobble, but I had the hardest time getting a spring compressor on the springs. That combined with the fact that I just don’t have a jack that can get under the Jeep, just made the whole thing questionable (and dangerous.)Anyway, the new brake parts (it looks like I installed the pads on the wrong side last time,) seem to have helped the wobble. I think the tires that are on the rear are probably worn very unevenly and are still going to give me trouble, but for now at least I’m not shaken apart at on the highway.
