any luck with death wobble??

I have searched but it appears not solid fixes yet. any updates, my trucks is doing it much more often.... planning on getting the dual setup for this. I checked everything for play and tightness.steering box was rplaced twice. 1st one cases split and replaced. got death wobble after that. replaced box and went away. coming back....steadily getting worse.

I think I am having a very similar problem. I have a set of dual stabz. on the way, but I would like to know where could I find a trac-bar for mine. Are these expensive?

Trac bar Smack bar - Dual stab. will help but get a good kit - I suggest SUPERLIFTS with Bilstein shocks and keep tires rotated and balanced.
Its a ***** with a lift and the only kit that seems to not have a problem is Superlifts with all there brackets they give you to keep every thing as close to stock as possible.
Since I have taken out my lift I have logged 18 thousand miles and have not had a wobble since.

I was going to do what dsi Did, But it is killing me to drill out my axle taper. I might see if I can have a machine shop make me a taper with stud on the other end to accept the heim.

You know you are doing something right when the Ford dealers call you for parts.

ford doesnt do anything. there is a tsb to change caster i think raise it but after tire pressure, stabilizer check, balance and roadforce tires. doesnt seem to work and from what i hear there arent doing anything. im gonna go with a dual stabilizer up front and remove stock one. i also heard to try just removing stock stabilezer and that alone has gotten rid of it. maybe sonce it way high on the steering components that it also pushes and pulls up and down making the condition worse than beeing soley used for side to side motions.....worth a try
