    Need to look through my frame better. I have pretty bad death wobble without a dampener on there. Going to be changing trackbar this week and see, but I have noticed a couple welds on the frame left something to be desired.

    Maybe it’s good that I haven’t bought a JL, yet, lol.

    well shit, my JL is at the dealer now for trackbar recall and my day one complaints about wandering and loose steering issues.

    I certainly don't want a "hydraulic device" bandaid put on there.

    Will inspect it after i get it back - been there for 5 days now

    My wife got the dampener when she was there for another issue, I flattened it on the Rubicon 5 days later. Was big though

    Mine is going in on Sat for the same thing. This will be my second bullshit “dampener” there has to be something wrong with the welds . My entire jeep shakes when i hit a particular imperfection in the road on one side of the jeep while doing 65 and over. the tires are showing signs of cupping on the front and way out of balance now. 30k miles. April 2018 build. Thing is fine around town (minus the annoying tire balance sound)
