    I had a patrol with same symptoms I also replaced everything with new front and rear parts only thing not replaced was dampener, once replaced all was well again, so dampner definitely stops the death wobbles.

    I had never considered Pedders until a relative recently put a set of their shocks on his 80 and they cured his death wobbles, so I'd give them a go in future.

    He will fit another set soon if Pedders are like they always have been in the past.

    All it means is he had worn shocks / bushes..

    He certainly did after 10 months on the road, towing a camper, seriously overloaded and pounding up the Gibb River Road to Darwin.

    I'd reconsider this too(as Tombie suggests).
    I was rushed to get a steering damper for my D1 over the holiday period, and they were the only place open on the day, and had soemthign in stock.
    Lasted about a year(30K klms, maybe less) and gave me a death wobble.
    Annoyance was that it was discounted as the source due to it being close to new, and felt tight(slack free) .. but on a hunch and nothing else to point the spanners at .. just bought a std(Armstrong) type .. for, $40 worth the small price guess .. and voila! .. no more wobbles.
    Cheers,
    Arthur.

    The springs on my POS were installed in 1990, well before I bought it......... Pedders heavy duty high lift. (all of 2")

    They've done 700 thou without sagging. Had Pedders shocks on it too from memory which had to be replaced at 300 thou, about the time I got it. Had been round Oz apparently.

    Has had a set of Monroes on it for 200 thou approx now (I didn't buy them) with absolutely no probs at all except bigger pin size, which turned out to be a bonus.......... use Toy cups and bushes (out of a parts bin)!
