    I think usually the driver should manage the wobble by increasing or reducing speed to minimise the effect.
    In me shit box GQ on the way from VHC I once tried to see what would happen if I kept the shakes going. Well besides all my insides nearly coming out my rear, I though all the panels and windows would give way...it was farked...bad, really bad

    'Death Wobbles' are an Harmonic Effect so if the outside factors remain constant they just get worse and worse

    If left unchecked IE you don't speed up or slow down to change the harmonics then they can be violent enough to shake the entire car quite severely, certainly enough to scare your pucker valve into slamming shut.

    I had a case of death wobbles on my Tray Back that were significantly more violent than the gnarliest corro's I have ever driven on.
    The vehicle was frightening at anything like a constant speed between 75 to 85 KPH but happy to sit below or above that speed

    Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.

    Yeah I am putting it down to crap quality rubber. All 4 are compressed and collapsed. The arms where in the right way and the thing was rear steering it's head off.

    The bushes where after market off eBay for $50 a set of 8. Damn it. Pushed out the uppers at the same time which had 320k factory bushes in. I have grabbed a set of OEM bushes from Roadrunner for $190 which where supposed to be here Friday but will arrive monday so will replace them all again. The original factory arms are back in it for a week of freeway.

    Those bushes had commuted down the freeway for 8 weeks!!!! No off-road at all. The only thing they copped was a heavy right foot by Naomi.

    .

    Why so much rear steer?

    Are you tightening the bolts right up before you put all the body weight on them?

    Nah I tighten the at ride weight. The left side had fully collapsed and that made the rear diff out of alignment. It would drive ok but had a really twitchy ass. Was thinking it might have been my front end actually as I didn't expect those bushes to be wrecked. Like my caster mysteriously went to shit.

    Put the factory arms back in ( so nearly dumped them a heap of times!!) And it's much better.
