Tires aligned. Been lookin over everything, cant figure it out! Any input on what else to.check or get done? It has only really been getting dw when turning left. Any ideas?

check your ball joints and wheel bearing. i had really bad death wobble for almost a year. i finally just got rid of it after pretty much replacing everything when it was on bad ball joint that i thought was good. mine did the same thing i would get it really bad turning left only. i replaced all my ball joints and wheel bearings and also put a drop bracket for my trac bar on and it fixed my death wobble. havent had DW in almost 4 months now

Its a jeep thing...you wouldnt understand!
