Our Mission: Completely eliminate the problem of Death Wobble for drivers everywhere!  Whether you drive a Jeep, Dodge, or any other solid front axle 4x4, we’ve helped hundreds of people eliminate this dangerous issue from their front suspension, and we want to help you too.

Since 1999, Kevin has become the foremost expert on Death Wobble because he has spent COUNTLESS hours laying on his back, figuring out how to fix various Death Wobble problems that plagued many of our customers.  As a result, we’ve developed unique products and packages, designed specifically to eliminate this problem, and they will work on YOUR vehicle too.  The concept is that when you replace all of these components at the same time, you stiffen up the ENTIRE system at the same time, and eliminate the problem of the factory components fighting each other as a result.  We’ve found that this fixes Death Wobble problems completely, in more than 95% of cases.  These packages will also strengthen and tighten up worn or under-engineered factory components, which were never designed for use with heavier/larger tires and wheels, and at the same time, substantially improve steering response, giving you far better drivability.

Kevin likes to remind people, “No case of Death Wobble is incurable.”  Are YOU ready to be Death Wobble-free?”

For a more in-depth discussion and tutorial, I’ve written my first book on Death Wobble.  Click image for more info.

As you may have experienced, ” Death Wobble ” is the horrible front end vibration that starts when one tire (usually the right tire first) hits a bump or groove in the pavement somewhere around the 40~50mph range.  Death Wobble can be downright TERRIFYING, and is quite possibly the worst possible downside to having a coil-sprung front suspension on a vehicle with a track bar or panhard bar.  Vehicles affected by this design are the Jeep Cherokee XJ, the Jeep Grand Cherokee ZJ and WJ, Jeep Wrangler TJ and JK, and also include trucks like Toyota, Ford, and Dodge Ram.  Death Wobble is extremely difficult to try to diagnose and fix, because it is actually caused not by one component, but by slop in the entire steering system as a whole.  To correctly diagnose and fix Death Wobble, your mechanic needs to look for “play” everywhere in the steering and front suspension system, searching for anything that could have “play” in it.  It is very time consuming to find a Death Wobble fix, and can be downright dangerous while you are in “testing phase”, trying to exorcise this demon from your Jeep or Truck.  Watch this video to better understand what it’s like to experience Death Wobble.
