Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Started getting this terrible shake in the front end of my Jeep the so called DEATH WOBBLE. It only happened to me when I was driving at 80kmh or higher in a straight line and down hills. At first it was only mild but after getting it again a few more times it got so bad thought it was gonna shake the car to bits... anyway got new bushings and new steering damper cost me $450 including labour and it was fixed..going strong still after a year now.

It used to start with this vibration and would just get worse and worse and worse but now the only vibrations are normal. I would recommend to anyone who is experiencing this don't drive it anymore than you need to cause its dangerous and more importantly every time it happens you can add $100 bucks to the final bill cause it fu*ks up more stuff with your car and costs you more in the end. btw my Jeep is raised and has bigger tires than recommended which makes the wobble worse.... and online there's many stories saying it will cost thousands to fix which is a load of bullshit just take it to a suspension specialist who knows jeeps and not your mechanic! at least here in Australia anyway cause not many mechanics work on Jeeps or know what there doing with them so they just say there sh*t and to trade it in on a land cruiser I had to call up a few places till I found someone who knew Jeeps

i have had brakes done, well alignments, ball joints etc and still not fix to the horrible front end DEATH WOBBLE that comes intermitently -always at speeds over 45mph. The front end and steering wheel shakes violently. It has changed my driving habits. I now always drive in the right hand lane of the freeway so that I can brake and pull over to make an emergency stop when this horrible WOBBLE starts. It can be so violent it shakes the steering wheel out of my hands
