I just bought this 82 bronco I replaced the front bearings and all the balljoints. and sometimes when i am driving and hit a bump the front end will start shaking like crazy and wont stop till i slow down. I am running 35s is this a result of not havn a steering stableizr?

The dreaded death wobble is a royal PITA to diagnose. But when I suddenly had it, I discovered that the bolts on my lift bracket for the driver side axle housing had worked loose & wallowed out the holes. You need to check everything, and I do mean everything, that has to do with the front suspension.

Check and see if one of the wheel balancing weights fell off.

One common cause of death wobble is worn TTB pivot bushings. A PITA to replace, but just one more thing to check. Do a search for "death wobble", I bet you'll find more threads on the subject than you'll care to read.

And one more thing, post up some pics of your Bronco so I can recognize you when you're tooling around Charlotte.

having a stabilizer helps, also cupped tires will do this not to mention unbalanced tires theres so many things to consider best bet is to go over everything. just my 2 cents though

the other big thing is the radius arm bushings they are sloppy they will do the death wobble. i took some over sized washers and made spacers in 10 min and no more shakes on mine....mike
