Last year when I went from the stock tires to 30's, I noticed a bit of a wobble in the steering wheel just going down the road. Well, this week it developed into a death wobble. It doesn't happen all the time. Depends on the road surface, how long I'm in the affected speed zone (35-45mph) and what not.
What happens is I'll be accelerating and around 35mph the wobble gets pretty bad, and as speed in increases towards 40mph, it gets outright violent and around 45mph it stops completely like it never happened. I can cruise at higher speeds without instability.
So, I know that the first thing is usually TRE's etc. Should I just attack this by installing new TRE's and a new idler arm? I'm thinking about hitting the local pick'n'pull, there's a Gen 1 there I could grab everything off of cheaply.
