Death Wobble

What exactly is a death wobble?
Mechanics who service front suspensions are familiar with this term. When a solid axle encounters the right variables, the opposing front tires experience a sudden disruption of harmony and operate at different frequencies. The result is a violent shaking of steering system components – right up to the steering wheel in your hands!


Many variables can cause this phenomenon, like tires out of pressure, balance, or alignment, faulty ball joints, wheel bearings, just to name a few. Pesky rumble strips may amplify the situation.

One simple way to avoid a death wobble is to keep your vehicle in good repair.


If it’s so easy for a machine to become dissonant, what about our minds, bodies, and spirits? What happens when there is a disruption of harmony between these or even within each part? What ailments may appear over time if harmony is not restored?


How adept are we at keeping our minds, bodies, and spirits in good repair?


We often feel out of alignment mentally, physically, and spiritually. There are many reasons…


We get upset at something or with someone, or with ourselves. The slight that we perceive may not even be intentional.

The longer we let it fester, the harder it is to rectify. We have met people who have lost all faith in their fellow man. Interacting with them is challenging, not to mention emotionally draining. We say they suck the life right of a room. They didn’t wake up one morning and determine to be this way. It happened over time. 


We may not be able to repair that person, but we can self-analyze our components and systematically make repairs to issues we find to restore harmony
