please can anyone help, does anyone know a good jeep specialist i can speak to in the uk about sorting out one of the worst cases of death wobble ever . i mean i cant even hit a small bump at 10 mph without it going crazy  which pretty much makes the jeep useless . thanks Tim

west london , hammersmith area , yea its got a 4.5 rubicon , new adjustable upper and lower control arms . when it was first lifted about 5 months ago it was fine but i drove it to france in december and hit a massive bump and it went crazy , since then it does it all the time . sorry i forgot to mention its got 35s on it also. i had a few lifted cjs in the states and never had this issue . anyway my local mechanic is good but i dont think hes clued in with modified jeeps as most uk mechanics wouldnt .

Get the caster angle checked, should be 7 degrees, I suspect the bump knocked it out, your control arms need adjusting.

Mine is in with Bishops in Guildford for 2 new ball joint kits as I type.  Fingers crossed no more wobble!
