Sold the FJ and bought a Wrangler

How's everyone doing? A friend of mine told me about this site so after some time I decided to join the forum. I bought my '05 Wrangler in Feb of this year and have done minor mods, Banks exhaust and AIR Raid intake. I bought my wheels/tires and Billstein 5100's in preparation for my lift. This weekend a buddy and I are headed to 4wheelparts to purchase the rest of the components. I decided to go with a 3.5" Rubicon Express short arm kit with a Teraflex SYE and CV Shaft. I do have one thing I'd like to ask the group though. I don't think this issue is considered the "Death Wobble" so let me know your thoughts. When at freeway speeds and I brake heavily I get a very bad shake/wobble. I "think" it's coming from the driver side front. When I let off the brakes and gradually reapply it doesn't happen. My first thought was a wrapped rotor. I've read it could be the track bar which comes in the lift kit. I've also read it could be tie rods/ball joints. I find it hard to believe that a Jeep with 37k can have this issue. What are your thoughts?

If the brake pedal tends to pulsate when thus happens it could very well be a warped rotor. If you need a set of them, we carry brake pad and rotor kits with free shipping.
