Death Wobble Unacceptable!
By k7su on


2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited X 4dr SUV 4WD (3.8L 6cyl 6M)


I purchased a pre-owned 2007 Jeep Wrangler X Unlimited in Feb.2011 with 16,000 miles.
About a week later the front end would go into a bad shimmy when I hit a little bump.
It was out of warranty so I took it to a local 4x4 suspension shop.
He knew all about the death wobble.
We tried a heftier steering damper, new cam bolts, rotating and balancing tires...nothing fixed it.
I read about it on the forums after it happened to me and saw the problems with the death wobble so I figured it was pointless for me to try to spend more money on it.
I traded it for a Toyota 4Runner.
Too bad Chrysler.
That was my 7th Jeep product.
No more for me!

Best Features

Looks, interior, fun to drive.

Worst Features

Fix the front end before someone gets hurt or killed!
