What is Death Wobble? If you’re asking, then you’re lucky, because most likely you’ve never experienced it. If you ever do, you will know this terrifying experience immediately, and you will never forget it. Death Wobble can happen on vehicles with a solid front axle and independent suspension, whether the rig is lifted or stock. It is such a large problem that Chrysler has recently acknowledged the issue publicly, but at the moment will not cover it under warranty. We have created our Hard-KOR Jeep TJ Wrangler Death Wobble Cure Packages to address this issue. We have an e-book here that explains the root causes and how to cure it. (Or click any highlighted Death Wobble on this page.)
These are our most popular and effective Death Wobble cure packages for the TJ Wrangler. They combine our best cure parts. These parts, properly installed on your TJ Wrangler AT THE SAME TIME, will give you somewhere around an 85%-90% chance of curing your case of Death Wobble COMPLETELY. We’ve been experimenting with and learning about the root causes of Death Wobble since 2002, and have experience that VERY few other shops possess. In fact, we get calls for help from other 4×4 shops, and auto mechanics from all over, requesting help and our proven replacement parts to solve their customers’ Death Wobble problems. We are the most well-known source (maybe the ONLY source); so I feel very comfortable in recommending these parts together as a package, not only because of our experience in curing Death Wobble problems literally hundreds of times over 10 years, but because few shops know as much about it as we do.
We have invented several products SPECIFICALLY designed to cure Death Wobble and reduce the “play” in the front end of the TJ Wrangler built from 1997 to 2006. Fortunately, the TJ Wrangler Death Wobble cases are easy to cure with the correct parts.
Our Hard-KOR Jeep TJ Wrangler Death Wobble Cure packages include ALL of the items that we recommend people purchase and install TOGETHER when they are having Death Wobble problems.

Death Wobble can be triggered by MANY different front end components and alignment settings, so be aware that there is STILL a small chance you may need more assistance after the Jeep TJ Wrangler Death Wobble Cure package is installed. If so, don’t hesitate to give us a call, and we’ll talk you though getting this problem solved for you once and for all. Don’t delay your fix. Get it handled today, and get your Jeep driving safely down the highway once again.
NOTE: If you have less than 1″ or so of lift, you *MAY* get some rubbing between the new thicker track bar and the cover on your front differential. This can be remedied a couple of different ways:
1) Tap the cover inward with a hammer where it rubs, in order to clear. The steel is not thick, and it should be pretty easy. The internal moving parts are NOT in the area behind where the cover rubs (the only thing behind that portion of the cover is air), so you can safely tap it inward an 1/8″ or 3/16″ at the most
2) Replace your control arm bushings. If they are bad, sometimes the axle will rotate and slide a bit further forward that the factory had intended it
3) Shorten your control arms by purchasing adjustable control arms or using the cam adjustments (varies by model)
4) Add 1″ poly spacers to the front of your Jeep between the coil springs and the body, and you’ll probably easily clear.
The Jeep TJ Wrangler was built from 1997 to 2006.
