Hi all
Another question on the D Wobble, mine is not THAT bad but it comes and goes, today nothing, last week a bit around 40 45 MPH, I'm scratching my head as to why it's there and not there, track is right, tyres good, no imbalance
any suggestions as to why it comes and goes..?

The kingpin bearings are good?

What if any lift do you have?

Are your tyres standard size road bias or big off road bias?

What pressure are your tyres?

Brake disc hot or cold?
Tyres hot or cold?
Weather wet, cold?
Weight distribution in the car?

All things that could play a part..

Some weeks ago I saw a "death wobble" or "steering wobble" eliminator kit.
It was OE anti roll bar bushings for older Jimnys as they were updated some time in the early 2000s
I think it was on Jimny Bits but I can't see it anymore.
Or
Maybe I imagined it.

Looking for a nice clean and straight LHD Jimny..... Not any more.
Got one that seems to have been magnatized and driven through the "Big Jimny Bits" parts stores too quickly so it missed a few items.

There is a kit that does this but its the bushes for the radius arms that were redesigned by Suzuki. I don't know how effective it was though
