    I have a 09 jku and I installed a teraflex 2.5 spacer lift with shocks, steering stabilizer. It has 35s.

    Sometimes around the 30kmph - 60kmph I experience light death wobble. I can't figure out what the hell the cause is.

    Death wobble is no fun ride lol

    I heard it can be hard to figure out. A lot of parts to check out up front. Are you on stock ball joints @EvTa4? Your tires are balanced well, or balancing weight fell off.

    starting from the outside of the axle working inward you should check
    -tires/wheels
    -wheel bearing
    -ball joints
    -track bar bushings
    -control arms bushings
    lots of parts to inspect

    One thing that gave me a steering shimmy when I had a JK was bad castor. Throwing on a lift with stock control arms was enough to give me some wobble at around 90km/h. I was surprised with only 2.5" lift but when I sold my adjustable control arms and put the stock ones back on it came right back right away.

    Good info guys. Ball joints are confirmed. There is more things. My guy made a list. Ordered synergy ball joints. Want to get trussed and c gussets. Can you put the c's on with the ball joints already in there?

    Give us a call for the C Gussets and Truss, they are in stock and ready to go!

    If you are careful with the welding you can pull it off, I'd recommend doing the welding first then putting in the new ball joints.

    If you need help with install just ask, lots of great shops around that we can recommend to do a great job at a fair price!

    I have welded on a couple sets of C gussets and trusses.
    It is best to pull the axle and do all the welding then the ball joints
