As some of you have seen and read I have had a few issues with my Jeep. Although most are my fault in choosing parts, and found out the people who put this parts on.

From the time the lift was put on until a week ago I had always heard this chatter coming from passenger side front shock. Only on pot hole roads and most of the downtown plaza. Hahaha
Also after Jeep fest I had noticed a weird steering feel. Best way to describe the feeling was. If your riding a motorcycle and have a flat spot on the tire and you go into a corner.
So I took my Jeep in for new shocks cause the old ones started leaking. New shocks are awesome. And while I was crawling around under my Jeep admiring the view I saw my tie rod end bushing was torn. So I went to specialty Jeep and 45 bucks later new tie rod end installed. Also had to get an alignment. Steering wheel weird feel gone. And for got to mention the shocks stopped the weird chatter sound. Now both of those problems came from the tire shop that did the install of the lift kit. I think from now on I will just let them do tires and let Jeep shop do Jeep stuff.
Well last issue I hope. I think I need to have the balancing beads removed from my tires and regular weights put on. I have a vibration at 75 miles an hour. Now I know I have a lifted Jeep and big tires, but I can't think that this is normal.
Any ideas?

Going in for a balancing Wednesday. Won't make the mistake on cheap parts again. After talking to another tire guy he said balancing beads don't always work. He said on rare occasions they work better then weights. He uses beads on semi tires but only non steering tires.
I guess I'll find out. Almost got my issues figured out, but I can become obsessed with something and that can be very bad. Other people may not even notice it but I will and it will drive me up the wall.

Some times just swapping the tire around will fix the issue. I had to swap my left front back with the rear to get the shake out of my front end. Just the way the weights are on that one tire and wheel it wobbled at 55. I know the tire shop had trouble balancing that tire. I should have insisted they try a different tire. Next time I will have them balance the bare wheel first just to prove it's a bad tire.
