    I feel your pain. My cruiser does the same thing. I was told that a 0 camber can cause it? I can drive at 110km all day but not 30 to 80 km. If I hit any kind of bump or rut then it goes into the Death Wobble . Any info would be great.

    Thanks

    did you rebuild the front axle befor you put it in?
    are your front wheel lugs tight?
    did you bend a front wheel?
    are all your wheels bearings good?

    The whole thing's a big mess. Cut'n'turn spring perches to correct pinion angle. Cut'n'turn knuckles to correct caster angle.

    I was able to fix my death wobble, which was brutal at 50-70km/h, by playing around with my toe-in.

    You can't change the camber on this front end, but depending on how bad your caster angle is you ARE changing the relationship between the two.

    I'd suggest trying for 1/16 - 1/8" toe-in (forget the tie rod length measurement they give you with hysteer kits).

    If that doesn't work out you will probably have to turn the knuckles to fix your caster.

    what drop hanger and how long eye to eye are your shackles. do you have a steering stabalizer


    i have 2.25" drop and 5.5" eye to eye shackles with a steering stabalizer and i had a bit of wobble with those tires unbalanced on bent 15x10's with weights still on them from the previous owner. nothing to bad, they are beter than my sx's but i really don;t care about the wobble. it wasn;t death wobble it was the steering wheel move back and forth a buit... i have had death wobble where you have to stop the truck because the tires get wobbleing so bad. this was loose wheel bearings. jack your junk up and grab the tire top and bottem and move it back and forth. i bet the wheel bearings are loose. even if you set to factory torque.... your running 37;s not 29's.....

    one answer: EXCESS TOE IN!




    excess toe in is likely the cause. Bring it out a shade and i'm sure it will go away. I'm also in a caster situation until i get my ride height settled. I had the same issue, adjusted 1/2 turn out, and voila, it's fixed.
