i just got off the phone with the Chrysler Customer Resolution Group...
888-922-7329 and spoke with rep. " Adam".. i told him about my issue with
the wobble and he is calling my dealership to try to cover the repair expenses... at the very least if i am killed in an accident due to the " death wobble"... i have a case number verifying that the problem was reported to Chrysler Jeep... a start.. will let you know how it goes..
this should be a recall issue !!

Jun 13, 2011 (7:00 pm)
I am a recent owner of a 2007 Jeep Sahara with 61,000 miles. Just recently, I am feeling a knocking feeling in the steering. When I slow down I can almost hear the knocking sound coming from the wheel. I took it to the dealer and they said what I am experiencing is normal for an off road vehicle. There needs to be play in the wheel. Something just doesn't feel right...Any thoughts would be appreciated.

my wobble started off smaller, it steadily worsened
tell your dealership to type in jeep/ death
wobble and many many sites describing
the problem are on the Internet
I would suggest you call the crysler number above
-- your steering wheel is NoT supposed to
shake so badly you can' t hold on
tell the dealership you want the
damper changed check your trac bar and
heck that the screws are not wallowed
they did give me dealer price. Approx
300..said I could send in for about 25%
reimbursement or wait to see if there is a recall
and get full refund. thats why
its good to have a case number docume ti ng
the problem. someone is going to be hurt

Thanks but my problem is not as you described. I an feeling a slight knocking in the steering. It is intermittent, and can also hear a slight knocking sound when I slow down. There is a lot of play in the wheel, and it almost feels as if I can feel the gears changing in the steering wheel, if that makes sense?

It will probably be something associated with one of the wheels, maybe a bearing, or maybe a 'U' joint, either on the front propeller shaft or one of the front half shafts.

Tried your number, but that is the 'high' level guys/gals. The lady was really polite, but sent me to the beginning level. Once you have a case number and it doesn't work out you can call that number. But great find regardless!
They don't take direct calls.
So I called 800-992-1997 and talked to someone in service. Told them I had the death wobble and got a ticket number and a phone call from the dealer to bring it it for repair....
