Default Track bar play

Hi guys,
I experienced death wobble for the first time yesterday! Scary!
I'm in the process of checking everything but wanted to ask if this is too much play in the track bar bushings?
Should they move at all?
Thanks in advance!

I'd say they are done.

Keep looking for other worn bushings as well.

Good luck!

More than I'd feel ok with, especially with both ends combined. I'm a bit surprised. I'd be contacting Steer Smarts to see what they think.

It could be the blue paint.....
