It seems here lately I get the shimmies after I go wheeling nothing major but shimmies none the less so when I re-grease them it stops. With this happening more often is it a sign of my ball joints going bad? If needed to be replaced anybody body run anything inperticular.

jack up the jeep and check for play some times when ball joints get worn grease will take up the play but not safe replace them soon when you replace the upper also do the lower i would use Moog ball joints they are life time warranty..... Also see the new thread about ball joint replacement. Matt
