Front End Vibration @ Speed (track bar bushings breaks down in 80-88) "...Problem: Some older 4x4 Broncos are equipped with a track bar (or drag bar) running from the frame to the axle housing with an eyehole bushing at each end. Due to age and miles, the rubber in the bushings breaks down losing its strength. (As you know, rubber bushings can break down internally with little visible indication on the outside.) The worn out bushings can move in and out causing a very bad vibration. Solution: Replace the track bar with a new aftermarket track bar. Some aftermarket suspension companies make available a "hi-performance" type two-piece bushing, which will also fix this condition. (Caution: Don’t try to use a one-piece bushing as they are extremely difficult to install without damaging the bushing..."

Wobble Diagnosis in 66-77 Bronco
Source: by Tim Van H at Wild Horses
Wobble Diagnosis, "...Bronco's & Ford ½ tons...on early Broncos =- get a friend to rock the wheel (with the motor off) back and forth about a 1/3rd of a turn. Look at the track rod from the frame to the axle (mounted just behind the steering box) Are the bolts holding the track-rod mounting bracket loose? Is the bushing in either end of the track rod worn? Are the holes for the track rod bolts in good shape, or are they egg shaped so that even when the bolts are tight they can be forced back and forth? To correct this quick and easy, weld a washer that fits tight on the bolt to the front side of the bracket and weld the nut to the back side. Is the large bolt in the front end housing wobbling with the steering wheel?; by welding the bolt head back to bracket, or buy a tapered bolt kit, (for cast mountings) and install..."
