Thread: Death shakes

  1. Death shakes

    I have a 2002 jeep grand Cherokee. It has a 3 or 4 inch lift kit for 11 years now. I'm trashing the steering stabilizer like candy. Can't find any loosness anywhere in the front end. What else could be the problem?

    The track bar is the main culprit. Anything simple can start the oscillation from tire wear and pressure, to alignment to worn components like a u joint or bent shaft.
    Did you do a dry steer test?
    When you do take note of the axel side bushing on the track bar. There should be zero movement.

    Thanks for the help. I'm using pro comp 6 shocks but never been impressed with them. Does someone have a suggestion for a shock with a 3 to 4 inch lift.

    Death shakes

    What are you doing? Road, dirt roads, mild off road, rock crawling, major articulation?

    Nice ride is OME shocks. Bilstein then rancho in my book.
    More agressive. bilstein, Foxx and others in no specific order.
