I didn't even know that this was a thing. Has this ever happened to anyone here?
It's more fun when applied to drunk chicks in heels.
Never seen or heard of this.
I’ve worked plenty of wrecks where the wobble has come into play with motorcycles
My 1998 1 ton 4 door centurion Ford did this and my first 2 yamaha v maxes did this from 105 mph up till 120 mph.
This is not uncommon in Jeeps. The CV joint can become coated with mud. When you hit highway speeds it can get wild.
Bicycles and skateboards.
Bent rims, out of balance tires, and worn suspension parts
I've heard of it on wranglers, seen it on motorcycles
Yup. 2007 Wrangler. Developed DW after having owned it for several years.
I researched every possible reason why my vehicle head death wobble and repaired or replaced pretty much everything on the front end and still had it. I wound up needing to replace the front Dana 30 axle and did so with an after market Dana 44 and the death wobble went away 100%. Been plenty happy with the vehicle since them.
Once in 20 years in my F350. Slight throttle and it went away
I had an 01 ranger that had that problem. first time it happened, scared the hell out of me. I found that in my case, it happened with over inflated tires. for a better ride, kept tires at slightly under recommended tire pressure. never had a problem after that.
It’s a Jeep thing. Any worn part in the front end can cause it.
Had it in my 2 Jeep Cherokees many times. Something in the front end gets worn or loose and it's hell until it gets replaced.
Yes. Had a Cherokee XJ, and the wobble was there, if I did not replace worn front end parts and torque them down.
Must not have been much of a shake if you kept going past 105 to 120 and beyond
It's been a jeep thing for years, a guy I used to shoot with totaled his wrangler going 70+... thankfully with minor injuries.
Ford has a recall right now on the Super Duty. I've had several driver complaints.
I had a case of it in my TJ once,it trashed the steering stabilizer quickly.I had a front end issue that’d kick in right around 45 mph. I’ve read it’s a more pronounced issue in the TJ wranglers.It’s quite unnerving the first time it happens.
When it's bad it's called a tank-slapper on a motorcycle.
It's caused by:
Worn parts in front end (bearings, forks)
tire air pressure
improperly torqued front end
screwed up geometry
Harley cop bikes had a reputation for a wobble on a sweeping curve.
